I used to have one of those miracle thaw plates, but I don't know what happened to it. I used to use it all the time and haven't even thought of it in years.
Buglover, I have a FABULOUS chicken a la king recipe. I'll go get it and post it. The best thing about it? It also makes GREAT turkey a la king after Thanksgiving and I have one friend that usually always finds out which day after Thanksgiving I'm making it so she can have some. Sadly she is still in Florida, but she has told me time and again how much she misses my cooking. Which is always nice to hear as my daughter hates EVERYTHING I make and hubby hates half of what I make. I can't figure out why everyone else thinks I'm a great cook and they don't. Because they are more finicky than Morris the Cat.
My daughter's boyfriend eats anything I set before him and always loves it. I love that boy!
