    Chicken Curry

    This is an easy dish that looks like you slaved over a hot chicken breast for days. Everyone can create their own masterpiece with the little side dishes you offer. This is good because we all love to play with our food.

    4 whole chicken breasts
    1 can chicken broth (non-fat kind)
    2 cans cream of chicken soup, condensed
    2 tablespoons curry power (more or less as you like it...I like more)
    1 medium onion, chopped,
    1 large green (Granny Smith) apple, chopped (or two if you like apple)
    4 TB butter
    a little milk if you need it.

    Bake the chicken in the broth in the oven at 350 till it’s tender. Cool, remove from bones, cut into chunks. Keep the broth.

    Melt the butter, add the curry powder, chopped apple and onion and saute about 15 minutes. Don’t use too high a heat on your burner or you’ll burn the curry...Yuck! Then stir in the undiluted soup, thinning with a little of the broth you cooked the chicken in and a little milk if you need it till it’s a good sauce consistency. Not so thick you can’t stir it. Add the chicken and keep hot till serving time.

    Now! Get out a whole bunch of cute little bowls and put the following goodies in them:

    chopped peanuts or any kind of nuts
    chopped green onions
    sliced bananas (sprinkle lemon juice on them so they don’t turn brown)
    chopped crisp bacon
    chopped cucumber
    chutney (comes in a jar in the jelly-jam section)
    bread and butter pickles

    As curry is an Indian-Indonesian dish, these little dishes have a name of their own. They are called Sambals. Serve with rice and maybe some fruit and you’ll have a bunch of happy campers.

    Cinnamon Coffee Cake

    Now that you've had such a delightful experience greeting the day, enjoying the early morning and thanking the Lord for His goodness, go back inside, make some coffee and put together this quick and easy coffee cake for breakfast. It's great with some fruit and you can double and triple it with impunity!

    1/4 cup butter or margarine
    3/4 cup sugar
    2 eggs beaten
    2 cups flour
    3/4 tsp. salt
    1 Tbsp. baking powder
    1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon (generous)
    1 cup milk (nonfat works fine, or you can use orange juice if you're out of milk).

    Cream butter and sugar together, add eggs, beat till light and fluffy. Mix together flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Add alternately with butter-sugar mixture and milk. Pour into greased 9" baking pan. Sprinkle with topping mixture.


    1/1-2 tsp. cinnamon (generous)
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 TB melted butter

    Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Topping melts down into coffeecake creating deliciously cinnamon-y valleys amongst the cake.

    Take your coffee and a good sized piece back outside and continue to praise the Lord.
