20-Minute Chicken a La King Recipe: Ladle This Creamy Chicken a La King Recipe Over Anything

Chicken a la king is traditionally chicken with mushrooms, peas and pimientos in a creamy sauce that's served over toast points. This rich, easy chicken a la king recipe uses leftover chicken and is ready in about 20 minutes. Serve it over toast points, noodles, rice or even biscuits.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 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

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt the butter in a skillet. Add the mushrooms and onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 
  4. Add the peas, pimientos and chicken. Cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve over toast points, riceegg noodles or biscuits
