Chicken a la King
Serves 4
Wow, does this dish have history! Firmly grounded in restaurants of yesteryear and Sunday nite dinner tables of today, Chicken and Turkey a la King recipes were in nearly everyone's recipe box in the 50's. Although those days seem to be gone, this recipe, when made well, is still a favorite today. Quality produce and a slash of sweet sherry make or break this recipe...thankfully, you shop at Nino's!

  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides as needed.

  3. In the same pan you seared the chicken, add mushrooms and saute until golden on high heat. Add onion and saute briefly until slightly soft.
  4. Add peppers and saute for an additional 45 seconds. Add garlic, thyme and paprika and continue to cook another 45 seconds. Add the sherry and cook for 10 more seconds.
  5. Add the gravy and bring to a low simmer and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. When chicken is cool, cut into 1" x 1" cubes and add to the mixture in the pan.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Serve with noodles or rice.
