Chicken a la King ~ The Easy Way

Chicken a la King Made with Rotisserie Chicken

Chicken a la king made from rotisserie chicken from cupcakesandcrinoline.com

When I was growing up I remember my Mom making chicken à la king with toast. It was one of my favorite dinners but I forgot about it for years...ages even until a few weeks ago and I had such a craving for it I decided to make it.  I didn't have my Mom's recipe so I improvised and used what I had on hand and to save time I used a rotisserie chicken from Costco.  I find I use those for so many dinners.  They are such a great time saver and for less than $5.00 a bargain.

      I love chicken pot pie, Diane! It's one of my favorite meals ever. It's a little warmer here today but yesterday it snowed, and snowed and snowed. I don't mind winter too much but I do long for some warmer days. Stay warm xoxo mb

  2. Mary Beth this looks amazing! I bet your Mom would be proud of you! My sister had a baby this week and I needed something easy to make for her family. You're going to make me look impressive. Thanks for the recipe. Hope you have a happy weekend, Coco

      Thank you so much, Coco ~ your comment was so sweet. 🙂 Congratulations on the new baby!!!!!

    This is wonderful! I rarely buy those chickens because they are so expensive here. We are like 40 miles from Costco. But I put a chicken in the crockpot on low before we go to bed a lot of nights and let it roast while we sleep. Turn it off in the morning and then I have cooked chicken for so many things! I will definitely be making this for my bunch! Thanks!

      That's a great idea, Julia, about the chicken in the crockpot. I've never tried that but I will now! We have a Costco and a Sam's Club about 20 minutes from our house so we go there....a lot. 😉 Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I've missed you! I hope all is well with you and your wonderful family.
