Help me with a craving

Back in my nanny days, the family I worked for had this old-school Betty Crocker cookbook. In it, I found a recipe for a chicken curry casserole. To call it Indian food would be stretching matters beyond all reason, but it was delicious -- a wonderful, mild creamy concoction that had curry powder, sour cream, regular cream, almonds and chicken. I loved that recipe so much I wrote it down and it traveled with me for several years.

Now I'm having a serious craving for that casserole, but I can't find the recipe anywhere. It's not in my stash, it's not online anywhere that google can reach and I (alas) don't have my own vintage Betty Crocker cookbook. I can't remember enough about the recipe to wing it, either.

So, can anyone help me? You'd be doing a pregnant lady an enormous favor.

Found a curried chicken ala king...but no sour cream in it!

K said...

oh wait! I may have something here...

Curried Chicken Spread:

3 T. mayo
2 T. sour cream
2 T. chopped green onion
2 T. finely chopped nuts
1/4 t. curry powder
1/8 t. salt
1/2 c. finely chopped cooked chicken

Mix and eat! They suggest putting it on pumpernickel or rye.

Hmm, looks good. It's not what I was thinking of, but I'll be trying it anyway.

I made a thrown-together sub last night with yogurt, curry powder, cream and almonds, and it was decent. Not the right recipe, but decent.

Thanks so much for trying to help me out!

You're welcome. I dug out my BC cookbook, not sure which edition I have or you had. Maybe it will hit the spot any way!
