Chicken al la King

Tonight I wanted to try to “lighten” up a traditional Chicken A La King recipe.  This dish is packed with flavor without all the calories of the traditional recipe.

Chicken al la King

Serves 4

7 PP


  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts tenders
  • 1/4 cup Wondra, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 10 oz package of white mushrooms quartered
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup dry sherry
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup chives, chopped



In a medium bowl, coat chicken with Wondra. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the chicken to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate.

Reduce heat to medium and add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan.  Add mushrooms, salt and pepper, and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms are softened and starting to brown, 3 to 5 minutes.  Add the peas and cook 3 more minutes. Pour in sherry; bring to a boil and cook, stirring to scrape up any browned bits, 3 minutes.

Whisk chicken broth and milk into the reserved  1/8 cup of Wondra until smooth. Stir the mixture into the pan. Bring to a simmer, stirring often. Add the chicken and return to a simmer. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in chives and serve immediately.

I had mine with the leftover Garlic Mashed “Potatoes” for an additional 3 PP.
