This was my first dish from Mr Foods. I really enjoyed this dish, my love it. I try to find quick and delightful dishes to make, so when my wife comes home from work I have something for her to eat. I watch your show when I have a chance and it always seem quick which I like. Thanks again it was great. My only change was I did not use the pimento as I could not find them at the time in my commissary, so I went with Roasted Red Peppers and Chopped the mushrooms up fine. IT was delicious.

Lives up to title of in a hurry. Used two large chicken breasts that Id cooked in broth. Only change was chopped red pepper in place of pimento. Very good over noodles or rice.

Just made it. Much better than what I was served at school as a kid. At least as good as Moms was. You can't go wrong with this if you want tasty food.

Made it. My wife loved it and that's good enough for me.

Absolutely delicious and easy too with a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.

I haven't made this yet but it sounds delicious and oh so scrumptious I will be making it soon because we will be having a big meal after church this month on the 26th oh and they will be saying either oooh its soo good or they wont like it but either way I will know if I like it so thanks for sharing this recipe ..

Several people commented that a picture is not necessary. That may be true, but has anyone heard the phrase "The eye, sells?" If you want more people to try a recipe, wise person might want to include a photo.

a picture is always required. if a recipe sounds good, I will more likely try it if it has a picture.

it's the picture that makes me want to check out the recipe

Good and easy to make!

this is,also,good over toast


Made this for lunch today, using some left-over rotisserie chicken. Subbed heavy cream for the milk, just to use up the carton. Had a few fresh herbs in the fridge, so threw in some minced parsley and a smidge of thyme, and then added a Tbsp of dry sherry! Five stars!

i prefer drop biscuits with this.

I find pictures for recipes very helpful - and I have been cooking for many years!


I agree, Brys! I know how to cook, and I am able to just jump right in, but I like to be able to visualize what the finished dish is going to look like.

Can't wait to make this!! Looks yummy!!!!!

This is the best Chicken a la King I have ever tasted and easy to make. For those of us that need easy and fast, try this, you will love it! I used canned peas (drained) worked just as well as frozen...

I agree with the comment about pictures of a dish that it to be prepared. Not all of us or cooks. Thank God for the invention of can openers and can foods.

This sounds great. And I love when a picture is added to a recipe. This way I know what it is supposed to look like. Thanks.

Who really cares what it looks like. The proof is in the eating, lol.

I've never known any one that really needed a picture to go by to make a recipe. If you know how to cook, you should just be able to jump in!
