East Indian Chicken

My friend Jeanette asked me if I knew any Indian dishes. To be honest, I had never cooked an Indian dish in my life. But, like I always say, how hard can it be? So, of course, I got right on it. I began to research Indian cuisine, and I found several recipes that looked yummy. This is the recipe that I chose. Not only is it yummy, but it's also simple and quick. It's even better the next day!!! So, Jeanette, this one is for you!

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tbs vegetable oil
2 c cooked diced chicken
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 tsp curry powder
28 oz can whole tomatoes
1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
2 tbs chopped parsley
1/4 cup raisins
2 c cooked rice

Cook onion, pepper, and garlic in oil until tender, about 3 min.
Add remaining ingredients, except rice, cook over low heat for 30 min.
Serve over rice.

Instead of buying a raw chicken and then cooking it, I just purchased a precooked rotisserie chicken. The chicken is so tender it falls off the bone and then it's easiest just to pull it apart with your fingers. Simple!
