Chicken a la King Ingredients:

  • 1 cup chicken leftovers, small cubes
  • 2 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup potatoes, peeled and small cubes
  • 1/4 cup carrots, peeled and small cubes
  • 1/4 cup button mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup corn kernels
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tbsp. red wine (optional)
  • 1/4 cup celery or green peas
  • 1/4 cup red and green peppers
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 12-18 pcs. sliced bread, edges trimmed
  • 1/2 bar quick melt cheese, shredded


Chicken a la King Instructions:


  • Washed, peeled and slice vegetables into small cubes roughly the same size of the corn kernels.
  • Separate cube potatoes in a bowl with water to prevent from browning.
  • Slice the mushroom thinly and in a small bowl separate the egg yolk from the white, set aside and store the egg white for later use.
  • Prepare your leftover chicken, deboned, skinned and cut into cubes a little bigger than your vegetables.
  • In a pan over low heat, melt the butter and add the potatoes sautee for a minute then add the carrots and sautee until half cooked.
  • Add chicken sautee for another minute then add mushrooms and corn kernels.
  • Pour in a cup of chicken stock and let it simmer.
  • In a bowl, dilute a tablespoon of flour in milk and whisk until smooth and no lumps.
  • Add the milk mixture into the pan and stir until sauce thickens.
  • Add in a tablespoon of red wine, if using one followed by celery or green peas, then red and green bell peppers.
  • Season with salt and white pepper to taste. Fire off, stir in the beaten egg yolk and allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile, trim all sides of sliced bread and save the sides for later use.
  • Gently press down each bread into muffin pans and press the sides of the bread against the pan.
  • The bread should look like a little crown of a King. Bake in a preheated oven at 300F or toast until light brown in color.
  • When it’s done, take off from the oven and fill each toasted bread with a tablespoon of chicken mixture into each bread cups “crowns”.
  • Top with grated quick-melt cheese, and bake again for a few minutes until cheese has melted and the bread are crunchy.
  • Transfer to a serving platter an serve immediately, best eaten when it’s still warm.
  • Serve with cold soft drinks and enjoy your creamy chicken a la King.

    These look amazing. We have left over chicken that we were trying to think of something to do with it. I think we may have found it.

    I am on a low carb diet and this is not helping me at all. When I am on diet, that is when I also like to browse through food stuff. This sure is very mouth watering.
