Curry Chicken Dinner Recipe

This chicken dish was originated by a woman from our town, Mrs. W.L. Bullard, for a special party in honor of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. I really enjoy treating out-of-town relatives and friends to this dish when they come to visit.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 2 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup shortening

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
