    Chicken A La King....ahhh yesss. I am trippin' down memory lane with this one. And this is the real deal. Completely homemade and luscious and flavorful. I haven't had this dish in a trillion years and am going to pay it a visit very soon. Sas, I bow before you in humble admiration, m'dear. You always make me sooo hungry. Thank you! :) Vickie

    jlv: You have to saute most of the ingredients anyway and you have to make the sauce separately so this recipe seems to not work well in a crock pot. However, you can do the chicken in the crockpot with vegetables and use it for your stock.

    my husband loves these type of dishes and he loves chicken, will need to make this the next time I make chicken,

    Would you think it would work in a crockpot?
