Recipe For Modernized Chicken A La King

Modernized Chicken A La King is my idea of taking a traditional dish up a notch. I think chicken a la king is comfort food – and a good use of left over roast chicken. But, tinned asparagus and tinned mushrooms, even though they make the dish easy to make, do not make the dish anything special. Don’t get me wrong, I love tinned foods, especially tomatoes which I use a lot. But, nothing beats fresh.
