Chicken a la King

I have been making Chicken (Turkey) a la King for as long as I can remember!  I usually serve it with pasta though I have heard you can also serve it over toast or on a bed of rice.

Over at Betty Crocker they show a lovely pic of Chicken a la King served on a wedge of toasted French Bread, and I have to say, it looks pretty amazing! I may have to try that next time!
