1/8 tsp. Mace

1 sm. bunch of Parsley

1 med. Sliced carrot

1 sliced green pepper

1 tsp. Curry powder

1/8 tsp. cloves

1/3 c. Flour

Boil chicken in water until tender. Remove chicken from pot, dice and set aside. Add all other ingredients except for flour. Cook until veggies are cooked.

This is an old favorite from a few years ago…
