An easy, tasty supper casserole from South Africa. Start with a bought roast chicken and what could be simpler?  I have made this recipe  probably a dozen times, just because it is so easy and quick to make, and tastes good too. My friend from Vernon, BC, Canada has my cookbooks and she made this recipe for us one day when we were visiting her.  You can serve it with a salad,  with cauli mash or with cauli-rice or  mix of cauli-rice and a little wild rice or cooked quinoa  for a more substantial "rice."  This recipe comes from South Africa.  It has a tiny amount of curry powder in it...for flavor mostly (no heat, unless you want it).  

1 roasted chicken
12 oz fresh mushrooms (340 g)
1 tbsp butter (15 mL)
Curry Sauce:
1 cup whipping cream (250 mL)
6 tbsp sugar-free ketchup (90 mL)
1/4 cup olive oil (50 mL)

1 tsp dry mustard (5 mL)

1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
1/8 tsp black pepper (0.5 mL)
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted (50 mL)

Pour sauce over chicken and mushroom layers.
