This recipe originally came from my favorite cookbook (aka: the bible) but in more recent editions the recipe hasn’t been included. I found this out after frantically calling my mom and comparing page numbers at the last minute one night before finishing up dinner as a newlywed. Since then I have countless scraps of paper reminding me of the recipe and I have come up with a few additions to our Chicken a la King recipe that add a bit more flavor.
15 Minute Supper: Classic Chicken a la King
6 Tablespoons Butter
1/4 Cup Chopped Onions
1/2 Cup Flour
3/4 teaspoons Salt
1/8 teaspoons Pepper
2 Cups Milk
1 Cup Water
1 Chicken Bullion Cube
1/8 teaspoon Montreal Chicken Seasoning (optional)
2 Cups Chicken
1 Can Mushroom (optional, from original recipe but I never add them)
Toast (can substitute with noodles, rice, etc.)
Melt the butter and add the onions, let them saute for a few minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients minus the chicken and mushrooms and cook on medium heat until thick and bubbly.
Add chicken and mushrooms until heated.
Serve over toast.

This Italian Chicken Pasta is a meal that I make on nights before we go anywhere- whether it’s work, school or road trips it taste great the first night when it’s warm but even better the next day after being chilled. It’s easy to throw into a lunch box with some ice packs.
15 Minute Supper: Italian Chicken Pasta
Recipe Type: Dinner
Jarred Minced Garlic(Optional)
Oil(Optional, goes with garlic)
Italian Salad Dressing
Noodles (I usually use thin spaghetti but this time I am using rotini)
Shredded Chicken (Canned, Frozen or Leftover)
Cook and drain your noodles.
Heat oil in the same pan that you cooked your noodles in, and cook garlic in it for a few minutes. Toss in Italian Dressing and shredded chicken. Let it cook for a few more minutes and then add the noodles and stir everything in until it is well mixed. Serve hot or let it cool and refrigerate, then it can be served cold.
