(Late) Foody Friday

Chicken a la King with Layonaisse potatoes

This is my Mums recipe, its one of my favourites of hers!! Its very rich but sooooo good.


  • Chicken of your choice (Roast breast, leg meat, fillet, etc) - cooked and torn into strips
  • 1 Green pepper, 1 red and 1 yellow pepper - de-seeded and chopped
  • 1 large onion - peeled and chopped
  • 2 or 3 garlic cloves - peeled and crushed
  • approx 150 ml of decent quality white wine
  • approx 500 ml of single pouring cream - possibly more, depending on how much sauce you like
  • Boiled basmati rice - of your choice, I use boil in the bag for ease!
  • Approx 4 medium sizes potatoes - peeled, boiled and sliced
  • 200 ml of single pouring cream
  • Half an onion - peeled and chopped
  • approx 250 grams of white mild cheese - grated
  • 1 clove crushed garlic

  1. Grease a frying pan or use a little oil, add your onions and peppers and fry off until softer
  2. Layer a small baking tray or dish with your sliced potatoes, sprinkle over onions
  3. Mix your crushed garlic into your cream and pour over the potatoes, add your grated cheese and heat in the oven at a medium heat for approx 10 minutes - check often and remove once cheese is set and bubbling.
  4. Add your crushed garlic and torn chicken to the frying pan and heat
  5. Meanwhile, prepare your potatoes and rice
  6. Add wine to the frying pan and reduce
  7. Remove from heat for a moment and add cream
  8. Stir through and return to a gentle heat for approx 4 mins
  9. Serve your chicken a la king over your rice, with a side portion of layonaisse potatoes
  10. Enjoy!!
