Thank you so much for this recipe!  It was really weird how this tasted like ACTUAL chicken a la king, just not as salty. ;)b
Chicken a la king was a favorite dish of mine growing up, but my mom didn't make it very often.
My mom always put chow mein noodles in it, hence the chow mein noodles that are mixed in (see photo).

I only made a few slight variations.  I too added some pimento, but I also added green pepper and a little bit of garlic and onion salt.  I used Morning Star chick'n strips instead of seitan.

Again, thank you so much for this recipe.  It is seriously one of my favorites! :)


This was pretty tasty and quick to make.  I modified a bit by sauteeing some chopped onions with the mushrooms and also added peas and pimento to the final mixture as that's the way I use to make a la king.  I served it over rice.  Will definetly make again!
