Recipe Write-Up

The other day, I asked MiKenna (our most particular eater) what was her favorite meal that I make. Without hesitating she said, “Chicken Curry!” This dish is one that was introduced to us by our next door neighbors who had us over for dinner one of the first nights we were here at RVA. Michael and I were shocked that MiKenna was raving over the curry! Since then, it has been a go-to meal for our family. So, I thought I would share this delicious, family-favorite recipe with you:
Chicken Curry
3 T butter
¼ cup onion
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk (could also use coconut milk)
1½ tsp curry powder
¾ tsp salt
¾ tsp sugar
¼ tsp of each: oregano, paprika, sage, parsley, celery salt, garlic powder
3 T flour
2 cups cooked, chopped chicken
½ tsp lemon juice
Saute onion in butter. Add everything but chicken and lemon juice, whisking until flour is no longer lumpy. Sauce should thicken as it heats. Stir in chicken and heat through. Add the lemon juice just before serving. Serve on top of rice with condiments such as: chopped tomatoes, peanuts, raisins, coconut, pineapple, sliced bananas, chopped apples, and (Michael’s and Amy’s newly discovered favorite) mango chutney. (serves 4)
Hope you try out this recipe sometime too!
