Creamy Mushroom Chicken Recipe
My favorite dish with creamy sauce is Chicken à la King, which is believed to have originated in New York, in the United States. Inspired by this dish, I decided to adapt the traditional recipe.
In order to achieve the characteristic creamy sauce, we need to use cream, milk, or similar products.
For this recipe, I used milk, mushrooms, and drummettes. A chicken wing has two parts: the drummette and the wingette. The drummette is called such because it looks like the small drumstick of a chicken.
I hope you enjoy my recipe!
