Chicken in a creamy, mild curry sauce. From my Grandma's recipe box, I grew up with this and had no idea it was so easy until my late 20's. I get many compliments on it, notably from those who claim they do not like "indian" food.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  2. Combine condensed soup, mayonnaise, curry, lemon juice, and half of the grated parmesan cheese together.
  3. Pour over chicken in a shallow baking dish.
  4. Mix remaining parmesan cheese with the dressing and spread evenly over top of casserole. Note: It is meant to be a kind of light, crunchy topping, not a soft one.
  5. Bake for one hour or until chicken is cooked through.
  6. I always end up doubling this recipe for my family *except* for one thing: the mayo. I do not double the mayo, I use 1 and 1/2 c in my double recipe.
  7. The sauce is marvelous over jasmine rice. This is one of my favorite leftover dishes, it is almost better the next day! Enjoy!

This was a very simple and quick recipe and I wanted to try it. I made as written but instead of the dressing used bread crumbs for the topping because I did not want to buy the dressing to use just half a cup. I thought it was missing some pizzazz even though I used really good maharajah curry powder from Penzey's. I love Indian food but I don't know how I would up the oomph of this. Thanks for posting, Tropical Texan.

I made this for an Indian-style dinner party, and we all loved it! My mom thinks the sauce would work well for salmon or some type of fish. We haven't tried that yet, but I love it as tiger chicken!

This is a twist on an old recipe that I have. We love this recipe with the following changes. We found that making this recipe as written comes out very dry on the top. Our recipe calls for the dressing to be prepared first before being placed on top of the chicken. It turns out crisp on top but moist underneath. The sauce is to die for!!! Also good with boneless pork chops. Thanks very much for the recipe!!
