Chicken ala King – creamy sauce with chunks of chicken and veggies, served over hot biscuits. A comforting dinner recipe!

We love serving this chicken a la king over homemade biscuits. Buttermilk Freezer Biscuits and Melted Butter Biscuits are two of our favorite recipes.

Since I’ve posted several dessert recipes recently, I thought I’d better steer away from sugar and share something a little more healthy. I got this recipe for Chicken ala King from my good friend Judy a few years ago, and my family loves it!

Unlike other chicken ala king recipes I’ve tried, this one has a homemade sauce instead of cream of chicken soup. It is scrumptious!

My family likes it best served with homemade biscuits, but you can also serve it over toast or pie crust if you prefer. I have my boys cook dinner on Sunday, and this is the meal my 12 year old picked a few weeks ago. He even made the biscuits!

This is a great weeknight meal, and if you have leftover chicken, it comes together even faster! Hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does. 

How to make Chicken Ala King

Kitchen tools for Chicken A La King:

Heavy Saucepan – when cooking sauces with milk, you don’t want them to scorch, so a sturdy saucepan is a must. I’ve had my Farberware saucepans for over 20 years. 

Spiral Whisk – This recipe requires a bit of cooking and stirring, and a great whisk is a must. I love using spiral whisks when I’m making sauce. They get into the edges of the pan, and make sure nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan.
