Recipes and more . . .


Make some room in your recipe box – or better yet, make a new one! Randi at I Have To Say is hosting a recipe swap.

Here is one of my children’s favourite supper dishes. I usually just throw it together but I’ll do my best to give you approximate measures. This is a great recipe to use left-over chicken and rice.

Chicken Pineapple Curry Rice Casserole

  • Cook enough rice (or use left-over)  to fill 1/3  a 9 by 13 casserole dish. More or less – it doesn’t really matter.
  • Sauté 3/4 cup each chopped celery and onions with approx. 3 T butter – or Pam if you want to watch the fat.
  • Mix in a separate bowl – leftover cooked chicken with  one can each cream of chicken and cream of celery soup – you could make 2 cups white cream sauce if you are in the gourmet mood.
  • add curry  (I add approx a Tbsp for a 9 by 13 casserole dish but if depends on your taste for curry) 
  • You could add peas or green beans but my family prefers this casserole without. Any cooked or frozen green vegetable would be good.
  • Add celery/onion mixture to chicken/soup mixture
  • Spread over the rice
  • Melt approx. 3 T butter in frying pan.
  • Sauté  a can of pineapple chunks in the butter.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar over the mixture. Or, if you are fancy, dip the sauteed pineapple chunks in brown sugar.
  • Arrange sauteed pineapple chunks on top of chicken mixture.
  • Optional, but soooo good – pour the leftover butter/brown sugar mixture on top of casserole (it’s not that much and it gives it that added tropical flair)
  • Bake at 350 until bubbly. Around 30 minutes
  • Serve with salad

And a freebie – – a free download every month.  Use this month’s coupon FEB2008 for a copy of the excellent classic  How to Pray by R A Torry.


Walking club members – listen to it while you add steps and work off that brown sugar and butter!

Now I’m off to Randi’s to check out some great new recipe ideas.

Many blessings!

  1. Yummy! This sounds like something I’d really like. Not sure my guys will eat sweet pineapple on chicken/rice, but if they don’t, I’ll eat it ALL! (isn’t that what happens sometimes?)Jody


  2. The recipe looks easy and delicious, two ingredients I love most in a recipe! :-)I love your blog. It’s beautiful to look at and interesting to read. I read your ‘almost’ 127 things about you list, and was left hanging, wishing there were more. You sound fascinating. Though your life has certainly been filled with challenges, your positive spirit is infectious.God bless!


  3. Yummy! My youngest loves curry so I’ll definitely have to make this for her. Maybe it will make up for dropping her favorite, lasagna, on the floor the other day. I’ll be sure not to put this in a foil 9×13 pan! ;v)
