Freezer Friendly Chicken A La King recipe - so delicious , creamy and full of flavor. My house smells so good when this slow cooker meal is cooking.

It’s called Chicken A La King, baby. Not only is it my newest freezer meal creation, but it’s also really delicious! Creamy, rich mushroom based gravy poured over toasted french bread makes me feel all warm and giddy when eating.

Freezer Friendly Slow Cook Chicken A La King Recipe

Freezer meals are the best, aren’t they? And I’m a little bit spoiled. Because I have the Frigidaire Gallery® All Freezer right in my kitchen so all those freezer meals are just a few steps away. I have been there, done that with smaller box freezers, and they are fine if it’s what you have. That’s what I used for my freezer cooking for years and years. But when you love freezer meal cooking as much as I do you want to make more and more at once to save time and money. So having this big freezer allows me to make a ton of freezer meals for my family and enjoy the days when I can just grab a meal from the freezer, toss it in the oven and set the timer for a healthy delicious dinner an hour or so later. If you are big into freezer cooking, or are looking for a new appliance I would recommend the Frigidaire Gallery® All Freezer  and Frigidaire Gallery® All Refrigerator set as they not only are big, spacious and help with keeping organized, but they can give you the built in look for a lot less than those expensive commercial sets.

Ingredients
  • 1.5 lb . Chicken breast cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 2 Cups Chicken Stock
  • 1 cups ½ fresh Mushrooms sliced...or (if you have a family like mine where everyone hates the texture of mushrooms) 1 Oz. Dried shiitake mushrooms, powdered in a food processor
  • 3 Tbsp . Diced Pimentos
  • Cup ½ Onion pureed
  • 1 tsp . Garlic minced
  • 1 Large Bell Pepper Diced

  • tsp ¼ . Ground Black Pepper
  • pinch of Cayenne
  • 1 Gallon sized freezer safe bag
Day of cooking ingredients
  • Cup ¼ Corn Starch
  • 1 Cup Cold Milk
  • 2 Tbsp . Minced Chives optional
Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients listed above, except for the corn starch, milk, and chives, into a Gallon Freezer Bag, remove all air, seal, label and freeze flat.
  2. When ready to cook, remove from freezer day before and allow to defrost in the fridge.
  3. -4 hours before dinner; place all ingredients from the bag into the slow cooker. Set to high. Cover, and walk away.
  4. Check the chicken around 2-3 hours after cooking. If chicken is cooked through continue to step 5.
  5. Whisk the milk and corn starch together, and slowly stir into the slow cooker. Cover, let cook another 30 minutes, or until Chicken Ala King is thick and creamy and ready to serve. Note: ONLY add this cornstarch mixture 30 minutes before you are ready to eat it, if you leave the cornstarch in for over 30 minutes it may separate and make for less smooth looking gravy.
  6. Top with fresh parsley or chives, serve over starch of choice. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Chicken Ala King is quite versatile. It can be served over Rice, Toasted French Bread Slices, Homemade Biscuits, or *Noodles.

*If you want to make this an easy noodle dish, add 1 ½ cups of water to your gallon bag before freezing. Then add 8 oz. of your favorite noodles (I used egg noodles) when you add the milk and cornstarch. Cook until the noodles are done and the dish is creamy and beautiful. Serve in bowls for easy cleanup!

    Karrie, I have really enjoyed your recipes. Their some of my favorites. I am going to try the slow cooker chicken Al la king. Thank you Susan 😂 ,

  2. Mandy Keating says:

    Hi, Karrie– this looks SO good! But I have a question: can this be done on low for 10 hrs, or will that mess up the consistency?

    • Well it can be done, however the chicken may be a teeny bit overdone and the peppers will be almost mush but it will be edible! Just not as pretty. 🙂

  3. Would it be possible to cook the meal and then freeze it?

  4. Ana gonzles says:

    Hi! I have not tried freezer meals before so I have lots of questions…if I want to add veggies to this recipe like broccoli, cauli flower or carrots, at what point should I add them? Is it the same time I add the cornstarch and milk? Thanks a lot..

    • If you want to add those veggies, I would do it at the beginning so they have time to cook. The cornstarch just makes it a nice gravy at the end.
