I remember learning this recipe when I was a first year apprentice at trade school and I couldn’t believe how tasty it was.  It’s been years since I’ve had chicken a la King and it hasn’t let me down.  I did add a small Italian twist to it by adding garlic, oregano and Marsala wine instead of Sherry.  It’s basically a casserole style dish made with chicken, green and red peppers, mushrooms in a cream sauce.  No one seems to know for sure the exact origins of this dish, but it’s supposedly from England in the late 1800’s.
