My Pap Pap loved to cook! You could find him in the kitchen a lot, he cooked more than my grandmother I think. Once she passed away he starting getting "creative" with his cooking and it was not necessarily something anyone but him would enjoy - like his Hot Dog Quiche :) This is his recipe for Chicken A La King that he used to make for his family and friends.
