Don’t Cook Tonight!
A Can of Swanson’s Chicken a la King
Boy, it was a bad day here. I didn’t get to sleep until late last night. Spane made me crazy this morning while I was trying to video something that I haven’t put up yet, and he had got grounded for the day – no TV, no bike, etc.
To make matters worse, I had to fix my printer/fax machine. With Spane’s Dandy Walker Syndrome it’s really important that I can send and receive faxes, and today was the day that I decided to fix the silly thing. I am a computer whiz, or at least my friends say that, and it still took me TWO HOURS to get the darned thing fixed.
Finally, I got it fixed, and Spane and I were hungry. There wasn’t anything in the freezer that was quick or looked appetizing. I was about to give up when I looked up in the cupboard and saw a can of Swanson’s Chicken a la King.
Yes, I know I’m all about having things organic and freshly made. I reconstruct packaged foods all the time. But, Swanson’s Chicken ala King is something that I grew up with, as long as I can remember, my mother bought it at the PX when we lived in Germany, 50 years ago. I loved it then, and I love it now. So there!
Homemade Chicken a la King
If you don’t want to use the canned variety, and you have some time, then may I suggest making it from scratch? It’s a great way to use up leftover cooked chicken, and especially good if you have leftover grilled chicken. Here’s my recipe for Chicken a la King – Weber Style
. Either way, enjoy this classic chicken dish.
Make it More Appetizing
Okay, so yes, you can make it more appetizing. That’s what I did tonight, and Spane and I loved it.
