Chicken à la King
Though its name may sound regal on first read, Chicken à la King is as creamy and comforting as it comes. This hearty classic is practically a crustless chicken pot pie. Some might even call it a chicken gravy.While it’s a delight served over anything from toast to noodles, we Southerners prefer it over a warm, homemade biscuit. Pile it on top of a Buttermilk Biscuit, and you’re sure to see empty plates from even the pickiest of little eaters at the dinner table. One bite will have the whole family shouting, “Long live Chicken a la King!”Here, we call for deli-roasted chicken, but this is a great recipe to prepare if you have leftover cooked chicken or turkey—just substitute it in. You can also use a quick skillet chicken or boiled chicken. But for a weeknight cook in a time crunch, there’s nothing like a recipe that calls for rotisserie chicken to save the day.
