Help, please! I've been converting my husband to vegan eating over the last few years, and he's coming along nicely. But he really misses chicken a la king. Does anyone have a recipe of a veganized version delicious enough to serve for his upcoming birthday? Thanks!

(I know this is posted in the wrong spot, but I wanted to reply because I have a good recipe for this.)

Hi! Chicken a la king was my husband's favorite, too, and I use this recipe with the following subs to make it vegan:

- Earth Balance (or oil) for the butter and vegan "chicken" broth (obvious)
- Soy curls rehydrated in "chicken" broth, squeezed dry and browned a little for the chicken
- Cashew cream for the creme fraiche (vegan sour cream also works in a pinch)
- Add peas (but that's just me)

It's really, really good! I think it's a little different than some people's a la king (I see a lot of recipes using bell pepper?), but I'd say if you have a good omni recipe and use the soy curl and cashew cream subs you'd be golden.

I used to make this recipe religiously ages ago: http://fatfreevegan.com/blog/2010/04/12 ... -ala-king/

I think now I would sub soy curls, add a bit of white wine, garlic, and master vegan yorkshire pudding biscuits to serve it over.
