Coronation Chicken

We love Indian food and this is a great 'at home' version for those nights when you are craving curry. Okay, I know Adam is the only one in the world who craves curry, but this is a good dish nonetheless.

2 tbls extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tbls curry powder
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tbls tomato paste
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tbls mango chutney
1 1/2 cups mayo
3 tbls cream
1/4 cup green onions, chopped

Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the chopped onion, cover and fry gently for 5 minutes until the onion is soft. Stir in the curry powder and cook for a further 2 minutes. Stir in the broth, tomatoe, lemon, and chutney. Stir until boiling, and then cook for 5 minutes until the mixture reduces and thickens. Allow to cool and stir in mayo and cream.

Add chicken and stir to coat. Serve on a large platter with basmati rice, garnish with green onions. A side of Naan would be nice too.

Wait, where's the chicken in the ingredient list? I see chicken broth but no chicken. :-)
