A tasty chicken dish with a little Indian flavor
I am certain this recipe came from my grandparents but may go even further back. I liked this dish so much that I requested it to be made for my birthday each year.
- 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 3 teaspoons curry powder (or to taste)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups milk
- 4 cups shredded or cubed cooked chicken
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 6 to 8 cups cooked white rice
- Melt butter over low heat in heavy saucepan. Blend in flour, curry powder, salt, ginger, sugar and onion. Cook until onions are translucent.
- Gradually stir in chicken broth and milk. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Reduce heat to simmer; add cooked chicken and lemon juice. Heat through and serve over cooked rice.
Note: Fresh chicken broth is best, but canned or broth made from bouillon is good also. This dish is also great served over mashed potatoes or egg noodles instead of rice.
