I had this recipe years ago, and lost it. This is exactly the same, except mine called for bigger chicken pieces, parboiled first, and 1 tsp. curry instead of 2. It was a family and company favorite, served with crusty bread. I am looking forward to making it. I might stay with the 1 tsp curry which just gives it a little pizzazz, but no curry taste.

The flavor was interesting but tasted more like a fusion dish than indian. Half my household liked it, other half said it tasted odd.


Just hubby & I …
Wondering if this recipe can be frozen for future meals?
Freeze “before” It’s baked in a smaller casserole?
“After” I bake it???
Can’t wait to try this recipe!!!

This hot dish is comfort food with a capital ‘C’. Delicious, satisfying and it leaves one tempted to take a second helping. As a variation, we sometimes open a can of water chestnuts, drain out all liquid, cut the water chestnuts into fourths and put them into the casserole to add a bit of crunch.

This is one of our top five! Absolutely delicious and addicting!!!


For the person that said it tastes like an Indian dish—news flash—other ethnicities and culture enjoy curry. My family and I are Hungarian and British, and we have eaten the dish for as long as I can remember (DECADES). I suggest an extra can of soup and extra curry, especially if you like “saucy.”
