So I am a planner! Whenever I am baking a whole chicken or turkey I always have this pot of goodies on the backburner of the stove just waiting! NOT hard, and uses all the bits of stuff you use for cooking whole birds!!!
What you will need is:
3 cups of chicken soup base/boullion
1 1/2 cups of water
3 tbsp curry powder
salt and pepper
2 tbsp of soya sauce/worchestershire sauce
(we use whatever dark meat/drumsticks/wing meat is left)
1 cup med cut slices of celery
1 cup med wedges of onions
leftover gravy if there is any
Boil soup and water. Mix in curry, S&P and soya sauce. Add veggies and chicken. Simmer and boil down. Add gravy if you have it.
Thicken with whatever you would normally make gravy with if necessary.
This will have a dark mustard yellow colour.
Serve on rice or egg noodles.
Judy called this green chicken as a child! She loves this and it is sooooo easy.
NOTE: cheap curry from the $ store is not a bargain, I have learnt. Cheap curry will take more than the 3 tbsps to get good flavour and WILL turn your dish a yellow/green colour. If you do not normally use curry, get good stuff from the bulk barn. ALWAYS read labels....a lot of the cheaper ones have a lot of salt too!
