Recipe Notes:

  • You can store this king chicken in an airtight container for up to 5 days in your refrigerator. To reheat, either on the stovetop over medium-low heat or in the microwave until heated through.
  • You can substitute half and half or heavy cream for the milk if you want a richer, creamier consistency in your sauce. Otherwise, if you prefer a lighter sauce, you can use low-fat milk.
  • I really recommend browning the butter and flour for this recipe, it seems to create another level of flavor in the dish!
  • Use leftover chicken for this recipe or a store-bought rotisserie chicken. Of course, there’s nothing stopping you from cooking chicken from scratch if you prefer.

Can I freeze Chicken A La King?

Yeah! While I recommend eating while freshly cooked, you can freeze it for up to 1 month. Once cooked, allow your king chicken to cool completely before transferring to an airtight container or freezer bag for storage in the freezer.

To reheat, thaw your frozen king chicken overnight in the refrigerator, then reheat on the stovetop for even reheating. If at this point you find that the sauce has thickened a bit, you can add a splash of milk to thin it out.

What can I serve this dish with?

This dish is usually served over something like pasta, toast, crackers, or rice. If you’re looking for a low carb pairing, cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles work brilliantly too.

Can I use a different meat for this recipe?

If you can. While the classic recipe calls for chicken (hence the name “pollo a la rey”), I’ve come across variations that use turkey instead. Suddenly you have something “turkey a la rey”! You could do the same thing and use a different bird for this recipe.
