Chicken a la King is a classic recipe that has stood the test of time. Our easy version of this saucy chicken favorite goes from prep to your table in under 30 minutes.

What You'll Need:
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, cut into quarters
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup (1/2 pint) heavy cream
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 (2-ounce) jar chopped pimientos, drained
What To Do:
  1. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat.
     
  2. Saute chicken 5 to 6 minutes, or until no pink remains. Remove chicken from skillet; drain and set aside.
     
  3. Add remaining 6 tablespoons butter, the flour, salt, and black pepper to skillet, whisking constantly until butter melts. Slowly add chicken broth and cream, and bring to a boil, whisking until smooth and thickened.
     
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low, return chicken to skillet, and add remaining ingredients. Simmer until heated through, stirring constantly.
