Amaretto Chicken

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Amaretto gives this easy chicken dish great flavor, and it goes so well with the curry flavors. Serve the amaretto chicken with hot cooked rice and a tossed salad for a tasty family dinner.


  • 4 to 6 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon Madras curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can or jar mushrooms (4 ounces or more - or use fresh)
  • 1/4 cup amaretto
  • 1 teaspoon Gravymaster or Kitchen Bouquet
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


Mix flour, curry powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a plastic or paper bag. Add chicken breasts (rinsed and patted dry) and toss to coat. Brown quickly in hot vegetable oil over medium high heat. Transfer to Crock Pot. Mix remaining ingredients and spoon over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Serve with rice.
Serves 4 to 6.

Based on what I had on hand..., Member gmkathy2

No Amaretto so I used Grand Marnier and 1-2 tsp. almond extract. No cream of mushroom soup so I used cream of chicken. Canned or jarred mushrooms...Never. If I had had fresh or dried I would have used them, so no mushrooms this time. The flavor of the curry is subtle and tasty. I may try a little more next time. At the end of the day, it was delicious. Next time I will try it with the Amaretto, mushroom soup and fresh mushrooms. I think there are many variations and additions to try. If you don't want to use alcohol there are options using flavored extracts but be careful of the amounts you use, their flavor can be overpowering.
