Chicken a la Gurnham Recipe

Never heard of this? That’s because it’s a recipe that my grandparents created. Gurnham is their last name so we call it Chicken a la Gurnham. It’s one of my favorite dinners that they make. We have had to tweak the recipe a little bit because one of the ingredients is no longer available in the US. When their neighbor goes home to London they used to have him pick them up some from there! I found a pretty good substitute, though, that gives it almost the same flavor, and have been making it with that for a few years now. Also, my grandparents always make it with peas…. I can’t stand peas so we leave those out. So I guess I have changed the recipe a couple times too, but it is still based on their recipe, so I still call it that.
