Company Chicken

Do you cook differently for company than you do for your family or for yourself?  I find often we pull out the “fancier” dishes, the ones that maybe take a little bit more time or effort…and sometimes we pull out the ones that have some kind of memory attached–sentimental or otherwise.  My mom used to only make this dish when we had company.  It isn’t particularly fancy, it doesn’t take a long time–but it sure is yummy.  Have a couple copies of the recipe handy, your company will ask you for it for sure!

Mrs. B’s Chicken (…’cause the first time we had this dish, was a Mr. and Mrs. B’s house.)

4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Cook 1 medium onion (chopped) in 2 tbsp butter until tender, in a saucepan.
Stir in 1 can tomato soup
2/3 cup beer
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp oregano
dash pepper
Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.

Arrange chicken in a 9×13 and pour sauce over.  Bake uncovered at 350 degrees 50-55 minutes.  Top with 1/4 cup parmesan cheese.

NOTE:  this picture isn’t that worthy of this dish, sorry!–but it was the only one I could find that even looked like the finished dish…
