Ingredients

  • 1.5 lb Chicken breast cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 2 cups Chicken Stock
  • 1 1/2 cups 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
  • 1/2 cup Onion pureed
  • 1 tsp Garlic minced
  • 1 Large Bell Pepper Diced
  • 1/4 cup cooking Sherry optional
  • 2 Stalks of Celery diced
  • 1 Tbsp Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 pinch Cayenne
  • 1 Gallon sized freezer safe bag

Day of cooking ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Corn Starch
  • 1 cup Cold Milk
  • 2 tbsp Minced Chives optional

Instructions

  • 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.
  • When ready to cook, remove from freezer day before and allow to defrost in the fridge.
  • 4 hours before dinner; place all ingredients from the bag into the slow cooker. Set to high. Cover, and walk away.
  • Check the chicken around 2-3 hours after cooking. If chicken is cooked through continue to step 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.
  • Top with fresh parsley or chives, serve over starch of choice. Enjoy!

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!
