I am a chef on a luxury world cruise liner. I love to cook and write recipes that are inspired by foods from all over the world.

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 the 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!

Tips and Techniques

  1. Replace drummettes with breast for a healthier option.
  2. Use small pieces of chicken to lessen the cooking time.
  3. Add freshly chopped garlic and onion if available.
  4. Let the mushroom absorb the taste of the chicken by cooking it on the same pan.
  5. Omit cornstarch if you want a thinner sauce.
  6. Increase the amount of milk to make it creamier.
