Tell Me More

  • We only cook with higher welfare, British Chicken. Read more.
  • Red and yellow peppers give the sauce its lovely deep colour
  • An incredible versatile dish, it works well with potatoes, rice, pasta, and even as a pie
  • This is COOK's version of the 70s dinner party classic Chicken à la King. The 'Alexander' comes from our co-founder Dale: it's one of his middle names. We're saving the other, Colchester, for a real emergency

Try it with:

  • When the suns out, Chicken Alexander makes a lovely rich and creamy sauce for pappardelle pasta. Serve with a green salad on the side or try adding some sun blushed tomatoes and dressing with pea shoots
  • Keep it simple with some rice and sugar snap peas, sliced in half and steamed quickly in a frying pan (just fill the pan to a shallow depth with boiling water and swirl round a knob of butter). It keeps the sugar snaps lovely and crisp and bursting with flavour and goodness
  • If you're in need of some comfort food, try a Chicken Alexander pie. Just heat and add it to a pie dish, top with puff pastry, cut an X in the middle to let the air out, and brush with a beaten egg yolk. Cook in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes and serve with Creamy Mash

How We Make It At Our Kitchen

  • Chicken breast strips are marinated in oil and Fino sherry before being roasted
  • Mushrooms, onions, and red and yellow peppers are cooked in French white wine and more sherry, which is then reduced and added to our homemade veloute sauce
  • Then it's finished with double cream, parsley and chives. A dish fit for a king. Or an Alex
