Chicken Curry

This is a quick, and delicious recipie. (My kids even like it)

1 1/2 tsp oil
1 small onion
4 chicken breasts (you can leave them whole or cut them into cubes)
1 small can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1/3 c. raisins
1 1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp sugar

Saute the onions in the oil. Add the chicken and brown on both sides. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes or until chicken is done. If the sauce becomes to thick add a little more water.

I serve it over rice (That I cook in the microwave while the chicken is simmering)

2 meals from one!

So after I made the Hawaiian Haystack recipe (see below), I used the leftover chicken gravy mixture in Chicken enchilada's. I am tellin' ya'...it was really good! I do have to say that I would have liked the sauce to be a little thicker for the Hawaiian Haystacks ( I think next time I will only add one cup of milk to the country gravy mix), but it was still good. Anyway...back to the Chicken Enchiladas. This is what I did:

I added another can of Cream of Chicken soup to the leftover chicken gravy mixture.

I added some cumin and stirred it together, and then layered it between flour tortillas and cheese in a 9x13 pan. (I just lay the tortillas flat, starting with some chicken gravy mixture, then a tortilla, then more sauce, then cheese, then repeat). End with cheese on top of course and bake it at 365 degrees til' it's heated through. Then for the last few minutes, I turn on the broiler and it gets the cheese brown and bubbly and delicious. Serve it with a green salad, corn and refried beans mixed with a little salsa and there you have it! It was so yummy and made my weeknight meal planning and cooking a whole lot easier. I went to the store last night and got more ingredients to make it again! I hope someone else gets to enjoy these yummy recipes!

Awesome Hawaiian Haystacks!

So I tried a new recipe tonight for a chicken gravy that can go over rice, potatoes or noodles by itself, or can be the start of Hawaiian Haystacks. We had it as part of Hawaiian Haystacks tonight! I will try to remember the exact recipe:

1 10 oz. can Cream of Chicken Soup
6-8 chicken boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I used canned chicken breast...3 cans.)
1 small can diced, green chiles
1 package Country Gravy Mix
2 cups milk

Mix the soup and chiles together and pour over chicken (in crockpot).
Mix the milk and Country Gravy mix together and pour over soup and chiles mixture
Stir together and Cook either on high for 1 hour (which is what I did), or on low for 3 hours.

We serve it over steamed rice with:
Grated Cheese
Pineapple Chunks
Orange Segments
Diced Celery
Diced tomato
Chow Mien Noodles
and sometimes Green Bell Pepper

It was so good!
