I found this when I was looking for a way to use Amaretto in Main dishes. It can be made into a pot pie too.


  1. Cut chicken into 1 inch wide strips. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and curry powder.
  2. Roll strips in flour. Heat butter in large skillet. Brown chicken pieces on all sides. Add mushrooms, Amaretto, grated lemon rind and juice. Simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Mix chicken broth and cornstarch. Stir mixture into skillet. Stir over low heat until mixture bubbles and thickens.
  4. Season to taste with salt, if necessary. Spoon mixture into baked patty shells. Garnish with parsley and diced tomato, if desired. Makes 6 servings.

So much better than it sounds. I have served this to guests who thought they didn't like curry and they loved it. Great as left overs,too.

I have made this a great many times over the years. Its easy to make and very impressive. Di Saronna recommends the patty shells but over a bed of rice or noodles is great too for a heartier meal.
