I’ve been making this 20 years, I’m heavy in the curry. Instead of bread crumbs I use crushed ritz crackers with butter or crushed onion rings no butter.. Awesome homey goodness.😎

I also pour the melted butter over the diced bread in a bowl and toss it and then pour that on top. So good!

Love this!! I triple the curry 😀

Interested in opinion on whether to freeze before or after cooked. And also what the other 4 top dishes for the person who said this was in the top 5! Thank you!

I have been making this recipe foe probably 40 years! It is always a big hit. The curry powder makes it. I cut the recipe in half for just two of use for dinner. Love it and never get tiredof it.


I’ve been making this recipe for 10 years! Exactly these ingredients. I personally scale it back on the curry powder but oh my lord, PLEASE try this!! You won’t be disappointed.


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!!!
