Chicken a La King Recipe



1/2 stick butter

1 package (8 ounces) sliced mushrooms

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup flour

2 cups chicken broth

1 1/2 cups milk

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 egg yolks

1/3 cup heavy creamy

1 cup frozen peas

1 jar (7 ounces) chopped pimientos, drained

3 - 4 cups chopped or shredded  cooked chicken


Melt the butter in a skillet. Add the mushrooms and onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the flour and cook about 1 minute. Add the chicken broth, milk and garlic powder. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until sauce begins to thicken, about 3-4 minutes.

While the sauce simmers, combine the egg yolks and cream in a bowl. Whisk well to combine. Temper the mixture by adding about a 1/2 cup of the simmering sauce into the eggs. Stir, then pour the egg mixture into the sauce and continue to cook about 2 more minutes. 

Add the peas, pimientos and chicken. Cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve over toast points, rice, egg noodles or biscuits. 


  1. This looks interesting Linda. It looks much thicker than the one I usually make. I don't put egg yolks in.

    1. It was thick. Gabe wanted me to make it.
