Rice is such an important staple in China, that a traditional Chinese greeting is "chi fan le mei you," which means "have you had rice yet?" It's a social equivalent to our "what's new" or "how's it going?".
If you want you can replace the chicken with fish. Any fish will do, be it white fish, e.g. cod, haddock, coley or Alaskan pollock or an oily fish such as salmon. Coley and pollock tends to be more cost-effective. I often have a tendency to wait for the half cost fish gives from primary supermarkets and obtain a kilo or two, split into food bags for one lamb curry in crockpot and then freeze. Alternatively you can buy frozen white fish fillets or frozen salmon for nuggets using the same technique above.
Preparing this recipe is even easier than the recipe itself. Mix the cream of mushroom soup, water, mushrooms, and wild rice in the slow cooker lamb curry until well blended. Once you've completed this step, then simply unpack and prepare the chicken, and then place it in the slow cooker curry lamb on top of the rice mixture.
Using a traditional curried lamb and rice usually involves a 1:2 ratio, meaning 1 cup of rice uses 2 cups of water. Typically the bag or box will tell you to add salt, pepper a little butter and then cook on low for 20 minutes or so. Rice is cooked to perfection through the steam that occurs under the lid of the pot. If you lift the pot on the rice, you stop the cooking and if you go exactly 20 minutes, you will have consistently under cooked rice.
A third way to be a frugal cook is to make use of all leftovers. Either freeze them for later use or make creative use of your leftovers. Your leftover stew would slow cooker lamb curry make a nice pot pie. Leftover potatoes can be added to Shepard's pie, or hamburger as filler. Just get creative with what's before you.
The wok has to be very hot so the soy sauce gives flavor to the dish, rather than making it soggy. Also, a layer of oil in a hot wok will dance around and create a nonstick coating. If the wok is not sufficiently hot, the contents will stick to it.
