"I Hate To Cook Book" is a delightful, funny and curious cookbook, copyrighted 1960 and was a girl's best friend. For the women who did it all, and was not predisposed to "liking" cooking to boot. This "Sunday Chicken" adaption is absolutely a lifesaver, for all of us, even now, in todays world. Just takes *chicken* and a couple other ingredients. Please give this your seal of approval--and most of all, *enjoy*.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. Heat oil, (and butter if using) in a small skillet.
  4. *Optional step*~I brown the chicken in this skillet first, on each side.
  5. Remove chicken if browning and put in baking dish.
  6. Or if you didn't brown chicken, just place salt and peppered chicken pieces in baking dish.
  7. Add onion and apple, cook until soft over med/high heat.
  8. Add garlic, cooking for 30 seconds.
  9. Add curry powder, salt, and pepper.
  10. Add soup and half and half, and cook until heated.
  11. Ladle sauce over chicken, covering chicken.

I cheated a little bit and put a cup of rice in the bottom of the casserole dish and added a can of water. I of course had to cook it a bit longer but it was wonderful. Reviewed for ZWT 7.

I used 2 chicken breasts but still made the full amount of sauce so mine was really saucy. This was lovely & simple & really tasty, DH loved it & said he would happily pay for a dish such as this in a restaurant, I happily held out my hand for payment..LOL Thanks Andi!

This was really good! Kind of reminded my of pork divan without the broccoli. I used 1 pork tenderloin (cut into about 8 pieces) and broccoli soup instead of mushroom. I browned the meat first and decided to cook it with a lid on the casserole dish because I was afraid it would dry out. Served over rice. Made for ZWT7.
