6 to 8 servings
You will need
4 pounds chicken
4 medium sized onions
2 to 3 stalks celery
5 tablespoons olive or cooking oil
5 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons curry powder (more if you like it hotter)
½ teaspoon salt
1 quart chicken stock
¼ cup seedless raisins
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup crushed pineapple, well drained

Cut up chicken for fricassee and boil until tender with a small onion, sliced, and two or three stalks of celery. Strain the stock and add chicken soup if there is not a quart of the stock.
Remove chicken meat from the bones, discard skin and cut meat into bite-sized pieces. Fry onions in oil, mix curry powder and salt with flour and stir into oil. Simmer for a few minutes and add chicken stock.
Put into double boiler and add raisins, pineapple and lemon juice and cook for half hour. Add heavy cream, chicken and more salt if needed, and cook about 15 minutes over a low fire.
To add attractiveness to the dish serve in hollowed out pineapple shells with some leaves left on.
