"I started with a carton of Philadelphia cooking creme, and ended up with what might possibly be the best chicken a'la king I have ever made. Not bad for completely winging it!"

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I did like the sound of this recipe but it did not turn out for us. It was way to rich for us, almost like a paste. If I was to make this recipe again I would use milk instead of sour cream to lighten it up and I decrease the butter, way too much butter. Also, a real chicken a la king is made with peppers and mushrooms and wine or sherry to cut the fat.
