A Favourite Winter Meal-Recipe to Try

I thought I would share the recipe for this delicious meal that is one of my all time favourites.

Chicken and Brocolli in Mayonnaise Sauce
Boil a chicken and pull off the meat or poach about 3 chicken breasts and shred the meat.
Keep the cooking liquid to be used in the sauce.
Cook a large head of brocolli until tender. Butter a wide shallow dish and put brocolli and chicken in.
Make the Sauce:
Melt 2oz butter, stir in 2oz flour and 1 tablespoon of curry powder. Cook over a gentle heat for 1-2 minutes then gradually stir in 1 pint chicken stock (I use the liquid that I cooked the chicken in, adding a bit more water if needed and some powdered chicken stock if it needs a bit more flavour). Stir until boiling, remove from heat and add 300g evaporated milk, 4 tablespoons mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 2oz grated cheese.
Pour sauce over chicken and brocolli and sprinkle with bread crumbs or crushed potato chips
Bake at 190 degrees for about 1/2 an hour or until bubbling and golden.
I like to serve this with steamed carrots and bolied or mashed potatoes. Definitely worth a try. Enjoy!
