Chicken a la King

Chicken a la King is similar in flavor to pot pie but a bit easier to put together. Get in your veggies with chicken and biscuits for dinner.

Jump to Recipe

When I was growing up, my grandparents would make their recipe creation we called Chicken a la Gurnham. There was a specific ingredient we needed that they stopped selling in stores around us. We had to change up the recipe, so it’s now more of a traditional Chicken a la King.

Chicken a la King has similar flavors to a chicken pot pie. The difference is in the way it’s all put together. For chicken a la king, all of the “filling” is cooked together. Then that’s scooped into a serving bowl and topped with a baked biscuit.

As always, by making a recipe at home, you can change what you want. If you don’t like some of the vegetables in my base recipe, you can switch them out for something else.

Chicken a la King Leftovers

If you have leftovers, I suggest storing the filling in a separate container from the biscuits. The filling can go in the refrigerator and will stay good for 2-3 days. The biscuits can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. I like to reheat the filling on the stovetop until warm then top with a biscuit.

  1. Oooo this is a new to me recipe. I have heard of pot pie but never really had one. I like how this one is easier to make and also how the bread isn’t really mixed in but rather on the side. I prefer my breads that way!
