Super easy recipe for Chicken (or Turkey) Ala King – using left over meat and frozen veggies.
Chicken Ala King has always been one of my favorites, I just have never seemed to get the knack of making it for some reason?
That, of course, was until now.
This recipe comes from my September Secret Recipe Club assigned blog, 2 Cookin’ Mamas. Linda and Christina are a mother/daughter team, cooking up delicious and healthy family friendly meals. How fun is that?! You will find a wide array of recipes, from the healthy side to indulgent desserts. (life is too short not to have dessert, right?)
Speaking of dessert … this Chocolate Kahlua Cheesecake was seriously calling my name when I was browsing their site. Alas, I have been sharing quite a bit of sweet things with you lately. I decided to browse the section of Main Dish recipes. I had it down to their Double Cheeseburger Pizza, Thai Beef with Carrot Basil Salad, or Chicken Ala King.
It had been quite the week around here. Last Monday we had to have our 15 year old Westie put to sleep. We had a deposit down on a new puppy for about 5 weeks, and she was to be picked up on Friday. Our other dog, was kind of in that “what that heck is going on?” mode. I decided to go with the Chicken Ala King recipe, based on the fact that I had everything to make it at home and I didn’t have to go anywhere. With the amount of sleep I am getting, this made all of the sense in the world!
