“This dish was originally called 'Chicken a la Keene' after Foxhall P. Keene, the son of a well known Wall Street broker. The name evolved into the more regal sounding 'Chicken a la King' and here you have it. Long live the king!”

This was a excellent version of the Chicken a la King I used to eat as a child. I added 1 1/4 C milk and 1/4 C flour and it turned out perfect. I also added peas and carrots. This is so quick and easy....it's a must try!!!

The sauce is thick and pasty. I believe there is a typo in the recipe. I think the milk should be 1 1/2 cups instead of just 1/2 cup. This would make total liquids comparable to other recipes. Also the taste is somewhat bland. Perhaps the ad-dition of 1 tsp worcestershire sauce would jazz it up a little.

I added an additional cup of milk, it was too thick using only 1/2 cup. I also added 2 tsp of garlic powder to enhance the flavor and added a small can of drained peas. Overall, it turned out great.
