Chicken à la King is a creamy American dish beloved by many. Mmm, it’s so good! Well, we took the same yummy features, dumped them into a dish, and named it the Chicken à la King Casserole! We love it when the original dish is served with pasta, so we made sure to fill our version with the bounciest fettucine so we can really soak up every drip-drop of the flavor we love so much. And we also threw in some spicy pimientos to give it a bit of a kick and a Southern spin. We are so sure you’re going to love these flavors transformed into Chicken à la King Casserole! It’s just so tasty!
