Chicken à la King Recipe Notes:

• We have always made this using peas, but I am sure you could use broccoli in a pinch – yes, I have done it before – it is a slightly different texture, and a different taste, but it is pretty darned good too!

• You can freeze leftovers for later reheating. Just make certain you use freezer grade containers. Hubby buys them in giant packs, and we keep the extras down the basement. Our freezer sometimes looks like a frozen soup factory exploded in it. We freeze soup, stews, leftovers, garden vegetables, etc for later use all year long!

• This is wondra. You can use flour in a pinch.

    I had to Google Wondra LOL This looks so delicious I think I know what I am cooking tomorrow for dinner now 🙂

    • LOL I should link to Wondra in the recipes where we use it, Stephanie. I bet regular white flour would do almost as well – maybe not as smooth, but probably not worth running out and buying a Wondra container.
