About this recipe: A fantastically quick chicken dish that is great for using chicken leftover from a roast. You could also get pre-cooked chicken from the supermarket to save time. Serve this with rice or pasta and garden peas.
I made this last night and it was so quick and easy to make and tasted perfect. I didn't have any mushrooms so I used half a red onion and a sweet red pepper. I didn't have any sherry either so added a bit of milk and water and seved with pasta. Everyone loved it, I will certainly make this again, thank you Joan. - 20 Feb 2015
Now let me just say, this recipe is spot on, I grew up with my Father making this once a week and called it by the same name. This recipe tastes exactly the same, great memories. Thank you for sharing this. - 03 Feb 2016
5 Star Plus - I am switching my allegience from the Chicken a la King I recipe (on this site) to this Chicken a la King III. I've used the other recipe often and loved it as long as you added sherry which was missing from the ingredients. I saw this last night and decided to try it. This is now the one I will make - the ingredients are all on the mark - I just added two minced scallions and a pinch of thyme and cayenne pepper which it didn't need but that I like. Both are 5 star but we prefer this one now. - 30 Jan 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
