Chicken a la King Made with Rotisserie Chicken
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.
If you love a rich, creamy and hearty meal (and chicken) then this is the recipe for you.
