My favorite childhood dish - Chicken in mild curry sauce
I finally made this - my very favorite dish from my childhood, and still something I request frequently from my mom. I've tried, and failed, before, so I was happy to really re-create it this time. And it couldn't be simpler. Really. Poach a chicken - or a few chicken breasts, that's what I did - and pick off the meat. Make a simple white sauce - butter, milk, flour, some cream if you have it, some concentrated chicken stock - and flavor it with lots of mild curry powder, salt and white pepper. Add the chicken. Serve with rice.
See? Hardly needs a recipe. But it's so, so good.
What's your favorite childhood dish?

My father did most of the cooking but my mother would make this wonderful mac & cheese. Still love it today
Åh jaa, så gott! Och med ris ja. Min med - det var sååå längesedan och det är nästan att jag funderar på att börja äta djur igen.
Jag älskade tyska knödel (kloss med långt o). Och makaronipudding.
There must something about chicken and rice that is universal. I grew up in southern california and arroz con pollo is abundant however my Mom made a totally anglo 1950's version with campbells soup and those canned fried onions on top ...tons of black pepper too.. yummy! I have tried to replicate but its useless I fear.
One of my favorites from childhood is a chicken and rice casserole that I think is made with cream of mushroom soup. The rice was so rich and creamy and delicious!
Min mamma brukade också laga den rätten :D Tror jag måste laga den imorgon. Mmmm
Yum, I remember this dish from school-dinners too! I loved it but haven't had it for ages! Now I will have to make it this weekend! Can't wait!
