Chicken Ala King- Mom's Recipe

Kathie Carr


There are a few dishes I remember my Mom making that my yonger sisters do not remember. I think Mom thought of these as elegant dishes, back in the day.

As the family got larger she made more of the basic dishes, faster, easier, and less expensive.

Here is one of her elegant dishes that she did make occasionally for company in later years, Chicken Ala King. She always served it over her wonderful home made tall and tender biscuits.
