Nailed this first attempt. We were both pleasantly surprised.
Chicken and chillies was a special every now and then at Crane River. From what we could remember it was a creamy sauce with chillies and onions in it over some sort of chicken on top of rice. We took that idea and tried to work it. I asked about the chillies on the forum. Got some great answers, but an email to the guy who prob invented the dish sealed the deal. “canned, diced green chillies” That was all I got out of him, but it made the difference.
Onions and garlic sautÃ©ed in clarified butter. If you have been paying attention that is the third time I have used real onion in food I make this week. Number of times onions have been used in food I make ever = maybe 5 including these 3.
The first bite made me grin from ear to ear. The flavor was very familiar. Theresa loved this dish back at crane river, but it was a bunch of work for her. She tried to not eat the onions or chillies, it was the flavor of the sauce she loved.
It was a bit thin sauce wise. The extra milk at the end caused that. I would maybe use more sour cream or a bit of half and half or heavy whipping cream to kick the sauce up a bit. Also add another 1/2 can of chillies. We simply cannot wait to try this again.
