This easy chicken ala king is the perfect way to use up some leftover chicken while at the same time making an incredibly good tasting dinner.

Easy Chicken Ala King

This dish is best served on top of some pasta, rice, bread or even some egg noodles. It basically just comes down to your own personal preference. The easiest is just to toast up some bread, but my favorite is some freshly cooked pasta.

If you don’t have any leftover chicken, then you can just cook up some up from scratch. I recommend dicing the chicken and adding it at the same time as the onion if you’re cooking it from raw.

Using a gluten free cornstarch will make this dish suitable for anyone who is following a diet that prohibits gluten. Obviously, if you have extras you will need to look at some gluten-free pasta, bread or even just plain rice would work.

Chicken Ala King

The leftovers should keep for a few days in the fridge just fine. Since this dish contains cream, it may not reheat the best. Personally, I find the sauce tends to split, especially when cooking in the microwave.

Cooking Tips

  • You can use either fresh or canned mushrooms depending on what you prefer and how much prep time you have. Personally, I prefer fresh since the texture and flavor tend to be a lot better. Adding fresh mushrooms usually doesn’t add any more time on for preparing this delicious chicken ala king.
  • You can use plain flour in place of the cornflour. However, you may notice the sauce is a little less thick so it might be worth adding one tablespoon more if you’re using plain flour.
  • If the result is looking a bit too thick then simply add some more cream until you get the consistency you want. Try not to add too much too fast otherwise it might go too runny.
