"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Added: Sunday, March 1, 2009


6 servings

4 cups cooked broccoli, bite size
4 cups diced cooked chicken breast
3 TBL Butter
3TBL oil
6 ounces fresh sliced mushrooms
1 8 ounce can water chestnuts, drained and sliced
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
cup mayonnaise
2 tsp lemon juice
tsp curry powder *
1 TBL melted Butter
cup shredded Cheddar Cheese

Pre heat oven to 350

Pound chicken breasts between plastic wrap to make even thickness. Salt and Pepper both sides. Melt 1 TBL each butter and oil on med heat. Fry chicken until done, but do not over cook, (they get baked too) about 6 minutes a side. Dice and set aside.
Add more butter and oil to same pan scraping up any brown bits, saute mushrooms until just soft.
Arrange Broccoli in a shallow 3 quart casserole dish, arrange chicken evenly over broccoli, do the same with the mushrooms and water chestnuts.
In a mixing bowl combine the soup, mayonnaise, curry powder, lemon juice, melted butter. Mix well and pour over chicken and Broccoli. Shake the pan gently, to let sauce go down. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake 30-45 minuets until bubbly.

Curry is a strong flavor, but very important in this dish. Do not O.D. on it unless you are a true curry lover.
