French Chicken with Mushrooms

French Chicken with Mushrooms

Also known as Chicken à la King is one of my go-to recipes, that I can cobble together in under 45 minutes. While this meal is traditionally served on toasted garlic bread, I often serve it atop some rice as shown.


  • 1 pound (450 g) of boneless chicken breast
  • ⅓ cup (80 ml) of butter
  • 10 fluid ounces (285 ml) of sliced mushrooms
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) of cumin
  • 2 cloves (5-10 mg) of garlic pressed (Optional)
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) of flour
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) of salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon (0.75 ml) of pepper
  • 14 fluid ounces (435 ml) of chicken broth
  • ½ cup (120 ml) of cream
  • 1 cup (235 ml) of peas


  1. Cook chicken according to taste, I use an outdoor grill and sprinkle with a light seasoning like Mrs Dash. Once cooked, cut chicken into approximately ½ inch (1.25 cm) cubes.
  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan (1.4 quarts or 1.3 litres) over medium heat.
  3. Add mushrooms and cumin then sauté until browned.
  4. (Optional) Add garlic and sauté for about a minute.
  5. Stir in flour, salt and pepper; whisk until smooth.
  6. Add in chicken broth and cream then stir constantly until sauce thickens.
  7. Add chicken and peas, heat throughout.
  8. Ready to serve on rice or toasted garlic bread.
