How to make it

  • In a heavy skillet saute chicken in butter over medium low heat for four to five minutes.
  • Remove chicken.
  • Stir onions into skillet, cover and cook slowly for five minutes.
  • Return chicken to skillet; cook slowly for 5 minutes.
  • Turn once only.
  • Add salt, pepper, curry powder, paprika and wine.
  • Turn up the heat and cook until it nearly evaporates.
  • Place 2 1/2 cups of cream into a small saucepan; bring to a slow boil.
  • Pour hot cream into skillet and simmer very gently with chicken for 25 minutes.
  • Remove chicken to platter; keep warm.
  • Skim fat off the sauce in skillet. Boil rapidly stirring until it will coat a spoon.
  • Add a few drops of lemon juice to taste and more salt and pepper if needed.
  • Smooth out the sauce with extra whip cream if needed.
  • Pour over chicken in serving dish and garnish with parsley.
  • With a tough chicken, it takes a long slow cook. These days I use boneless skinless chicken breasts and reduce the cooking time by almost half. It is wonderful served with roasted potatoes and peas. The curry sauce is rich and lightly seasoned.
