Chicken Ala King- dairy- & soy-free

Jessica Dayon


My daughter is allergic to dairy and soy. I am always looking for new dinners to make that both she and my whole family will enjoy. I developed this dish just for her and but everyone loves it!

To make this quick to prepare after work, I chop the chicken, onion, and mushroom the night before and keep them in plastic bags in the refrigerator for the next day.

Also, note that this dish does not taste like coconut from the coconut milk. The coconut milk just helps to make it creamy.
