"I like the way this sounds. I ripped it out of one of my cookbooks so I don't know which one (I know) but it was one of those community cookbooks. This was submitted by Lois Wolke."

  1. I've been making this recipe for years. My mother-in-law has it on a small clipping from her newspaper with the title "Spenny's Chicken." She usually made it with chicken thighs. I use breasts. I often add sliced mushrooms. Today I also added a can of diced tomatoes. I always serve it over stovetop stuffing.


  1. My mother-in-law has been making this for years; still have a photocopy of the original recipe from 1982. She typically makes double the sauce and serves over rice. Made last night according to recipe and the curry was very overwhelming. I would either omit completely or add a bit next time. Otherwise - delicious and easy to prepare.


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
