  • There isn’t one clear origin story for chicken a la king, but most people can agree that it’s pretty darn delicious. Characterized by its flavorful, creamy sauce and served over buttery biscuits, it’s a seriously satisfying comfort food that will warm you up on any chilly day. This recipe calls for cubed cooked chicken, and there are a number of shortcuts you can take if you don’t feel like cooking and cutting chicken separately. You can opt for canned chicken if you’re in a big hurry, or you can pick up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and use some of that meat (and stash the leftovers in your fridge for more delicious chicken recipes!).
