I got this years ago from my ex mother in law who has sadly passed away since ... my kids loved it back then and it is still a favourite now.

I have passed this recipe on to many others before who have found it utterly delicious as well!

Ingredients:

1 x Chicken Maryland for each person (I usually make this with 4 ... or a mixture of drumsticks and wings)
1 x brown onion chopped
1 x tin of cream of chicken soup
1 x tim of cream of mushroom soup
1 x packet of french onion soup
1 x cup of mayonaise
1 x tablespoon of curry powder
1 x box of no name stuffing mix


In a mixing bowl mix all the soups together with the mayo and curry powder.
Place chicken in a baking dish and cover with chopped onion and then cover with the soup mixture.
Sprinke the stuffing mix over the whole dish so there is a light coating. Add a few dollops of butter on top and bake in the oven
until the chicken is cooked and the stuffing mix is golden on top.

Only one word of warning ... EVERYONE complains about the ummmm smell a day or so later :ROFL :ROFL :ROFL

Chicken Maryland is simply a chook broken down into pieces. You go into the butchers and ask for a kilo of Chicken Maryland you get a mix of thighs, wings, drumsticks etc.

In most places in Australia chicken maryland is actually a cut - it is the thigh with the leg attached.

Blackleghorn is correct ... it is the thigh and leg in one cut.

They are pretty big and once cooked I usually cut the thighs off the bone very easily.

A variation I often do is throw in some veges and then just serve on a bed of rice as the meal
itself is very filling, the sauce though mixed through the rice is sooo yummy!

Would love to know if anyone else gives it a go and what they thought of it! :)

OK Sessieau i've made it for tea tonight. Bowls of rice with steamed beans, cauliflower and mushrooms to accompany it.

It smells devine and tastes fabulous. Thanks to Gran for the recipe :biggrin:

Yay!! Looks delish!! We had it again on the weekend as it is the kids favorite.

Glad you liked it, Gran has passed but it would make her very happy to know others are enjoying it too. :)

Looks yum! I lack inspiration with cooking at times, maybe we need to share our favourite recipes! :thumbs:

I think that is a great idea, I used to share dinner all the time on my fb page as so many people say the same thing.

Maybe we could start a thread for easy to cook recipes that can be done pretty quickly?
