Curry-licious!

My first meal in the Armitage home was Brenda's tasty Chicken Curry. I enjoyed it so much that I made sure to get the recipe from my fabulous Mom-in-Law. I tried making it last night but didn't have some of the ingredients. So tonight, I took a shot at it! I knew I suceeded when Andrew said it tasted just like his Mom's! I am a proud wife.
P.S. It's not spicy :) Just rich in flavor! Yummmm-O!!!

Chicken Curry

3 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup minced onion
1 1/2 tsp curry powder
3 Tbsp flour
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1 cup chicken broth or 1 chicken bouillon cube dissolved in 1 cup hot water
1 cup milk
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1/2 tsp lemon juice
3 to 4 cups cooked rice (1 cup uncooked)

Melt butter over low heat in heavy saucepan (I used a wok). Saute onion and curry in melted butter. Blend in flour and seasonings. Cook over low heat until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in chicken broth and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Add chicken and lemon juice. heat.

4 servings.

*I dont use cooked chicken...I defrost chicken breasts, cut them in cubes and throw them in when the sauce is bubbly and let em' cook for about 15 to 20 minutes.

We almost had that for dinner tonight - I had frozen a batch the last time Doug made it - but we were working late on a project w/ Tyler and ended up eating at McDonalds - definitely tomorrow night we will be eating Chicken Curry!

I'm so glad you posted this- I have always wanted to try making curry because I LOVE eating so much. Where do you get your curry powder?
