Cold Chicken With Curry Mayonnaise

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Sherrie-pie

A make-ahead dish, which can be served to guests. The curry isn't overwhelming - it's in the sauce and adds flavour. A good dish for a hot day. Thanks to Annette Human's Microwave Winners. I prefer to roast the chicken conventionally. The cooking time does not include the chilling time.

... Apologies but I fried the onions in Olive Oil and Butter until just translucent and the followed with the rest of the ingredients with a touch of water the righty side of soft mixed .. chicken was precooked bought (tempus fugit) but drumstick a la BBQ Sugar etc... I mixed the mayonnaise only on serving just to better keep the unused chicken mix until Anon.. Inspired Menu and reminiscent of Other South African Stews... simple and subtle and will go with any (cold) left over Curries.. L&K.Mmy,Me,TU&Apricot

Microwave the mixture, uncovered, for about 4 minutes on 100% power, or until thick; stir halfway through this time. Allow to cool. Stir the mayonnaise into the cold onion mixture. Arrange the cold chicken thighs on a serving platter and spoon the curried mayonnaise over them. Chill well.
