A gorgeous dish that's easy to prepare.


  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 large onions
  • 750g chicken
  • 500g mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons chicken stock
  • 200 ml cream
  • 200 ml mayonnaise
  • small bunch of parsley


  • STEP 1
    Slice the onions roughly and fry lightly in a large frying pan in small amount of oil.
  • STEP 2
    In a bowl or large measuring cup combine the wine, water, curry powder and chicken stock. Pour this into the onions and allow to simmer for about half an hour.
  • STEP 3
    Slice the mushrooms thickly and cube the chicken. Fry lightly, and then add to the onions simmering in the wine and water mix. Leave simmering for another 10 minutes.
  • STEP 4
    Meanwhile whip the cream till it just holds shape, then fold in the mayonnaise, and lastly the parsley, finely chopped.
  • STEP 5
    Remove the chicken, mushrooms, onions and wine from the heat and fold in the cream, mayonnaise and parsley just before serving. Serve on a bed white rice.
  • STEP 6
    This can also make a really nice vegetarian meal if you leave out the chicken and double the amount of mushrooms, and replace the chicken stock with vegetable stock.
