You mean you have a shelf full of Junior League cookbooks from the Southeast and can't decide which recipe to use? I used this one from Southern Living, which I guessed was reasonably close to the traditional dish. I cut it back to 4 thighs for the two of us.

Actually, it was pretty tasty. I think that next time I'll try it with b/s thighs. I used currants, because that's what I have at the moment. Curry with the other flavors was a good combination.
It's a lot older than the '50s. It's sort of a fusion dish - southern and Indian - associated with Charleston, SC. The theory is that it was invented in the 19th century and appeared in Junior League cookbooks in the' 50s.

That's what I understand too GG.

Country Captain Chicken was originally published in the United States in the pages of Miss Leslie’s New Cookery Book published in Philadelphia in 1857. The recipe has been around for a very long time.

I am not a fan of curry and I'm not sure why I even tried this dish, but I'm glad I did. The curry flavor can (and should be) quite subtle, and just a background flavor instead of the star of the show. I used only 2 tsp. of curry powder. We thought the combo of flavors both interesting and delicious.

She does. Good and bad. Though there's a lot more good in her.

And to think I was hesitant to use a recipe from the 1950's!!!
