What's Cookin' Mama? Chicken Curry

I love to cook, because I love to eat. Mrs. Nod cooks from necessity, because the Nodlings will starve otherwise.

We got a crockpot when we first got married and it served us well. It has since been replaced which is a testament to its usefulness. Our is a Rival brand and it came with a cookbook of sample recipes. Mrs. Nod is the saving kind, so she actually refers back to it now and again in search of new recipes.

One of the crowd pleasers is Chicken Curry (we use a mild/medium curry so there are no complaints). In fact, Mrs. Nod figured out how to convert this dish into a stove top recipe for when we're in more of a hurry, so you know it's pretty yummy.  Everybody we've introduced to the dish has come away happy. Now, you try!

2 chicken breasts
21 1/2 ounces cream of chicken soup, canned
1/2 cup dry sherry
1/4 cup butter
4 green onions, chopped
2 teaspoons curry powder
2 teaspoons salt
dash pepper
rice, cooked
  1. Cut the chicken into small pieces; place in slow cooker.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except for rice.
  3. Cover; cook on High 2½-4 hours or Low 6-8 hours.
  4. Serve over rice.

I have a similar recipe for the stove top - I add a small can of drained mandarin oranges at the end and warm 'em through.

When serving, I put a bowl of raisins on the table for fam members to sprinkle on top. Sweet goodness!

Wow, I never thought of that. Raisins make sense, but the mandarin oranges is a new one to me. I'll have to try it - thanks!
