    5 Star Plus - I am switching my allegience from the Chicken a la King I recipe (on this site) to this Chicken a la King III. I've used the other recipe often and loved it as long as you added sherry which was missing from the ingredients. I saw this last night and decided to try it. This is now the one I will make - the ingredients are all on the mark - I just added two minced scallions and a pinch of thyme and cayenne pepper which it didn't need but that I like. Both are 5 star but we prefer this one now.  -  30 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Did make some changes. Used a chopped shallot and minced garlic to saute with mushrooms, 1/2 cup carrots and 1/2 cup frozen peas. I used white wine instead of sherry and added about 1/4 tsp. dried thyme. Turned out great, lots of flavour. Will make again for sure.  -  03 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    For luv2cook, who hates to waste the egg whites: those egg whites can be saved in a little bowl or zip lock bag, and used the next day to make a heart healthy omlette. I was surprised when I tried this type of omlette- very tasty! Enjoy your a la king without guilt! :D  -  08 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
