Recipe #185: Chicken A La King

This was cheap, easy, and kinda fun to make, definitely delicious, very filling, and I got to use pimentos for the first time!

By the way, this is probably the LEAST photogenic recipe I've made so far, so don't let the picture fool you.  It IS really good.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 cups cooked, cubed chicken breast meat
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 pimento, chopped
  • 4 teaspoons cooking sherry
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute bell pepper and mushrooms until tender, then stir in broth and flour and cook, stirring, until thickened. Add chicken, heat through and remove from heat.
  2. In a small bowl combine sour cream, egg yolks, pimento, sherry, salt and pepper and mix together. Add this mixture to chicken mixture in skillet and heat thoroughly, stirring. Serve hot.
