Chicken A La King is creamy and delicious comfort food all the way! Wonderful way to use leftover chicken and other ingredients (rice, peas), too. Feel free to use leftover turkey meat instead of chicken during the holidays.



  1. In a saucepan, over medium-low heat, add butter, stirring until melted. Mix in 2 tbsp gluten-free flour. Stir until blended and thickened, about a minute or two, stirring constantly. Add the chicken broth and milk gradually to the mixture. Heat on medium stirring constantly, until mixture just starts to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer up to 10 minutes until you have a thicker sauce. Whisk gently if needed to break up any lumps.
  2. Stir in chicken, peas, poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking an additional minute or so until the mixture is thickened sufficiently and the chicken and peas are heated through.
  3. Serve over rice, pasta, zoodles, toast, or biscuits.
  4. Notes: I usually use leftover chicken for this recipe. However, when I bake chicken specifically for this recipe, I bake about six boneless chicken breasts (more than I need by far) at 350F for about one hour, salting and peppering them well before baking. I turn the breasts over halfway through baking and I reserve the “broth” that’s made from cooking and use that as my chicken broth. Because I’ve salted and peppered the chicken breasts during baking, I don’t add additional salt and pepper when I make my Chicken A La King. This recipe is very flexible. You can tweak the amounts of butter (or oil), milk, flour, cheese (if used), etc. to your own personal preferences. It’s delicious every time!
