    medium onion, chopped

  • tablespoons curry powder

  • ½

    tablespoon tomato paste

  • ½

    cup red wine

  • 1

    bay leaf

  • Pinch each of thyme and oregano

  • 1

    tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • ¼

    cup currants (optional)

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

    tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions

Heat the oil in a medium nonreactive saucepan. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the curry powder and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, then the wine, 1/2 cup of water and the bay leaf and bring to a boil. Add the thyme, oregano and 1/2 tablespoon of the lemon juice and cook until thickened and reduced by three-quarters, about 6 minutes. Strain the sauce into a large bowl, pressing hard on the solids; let cool. 2 Add the mayonnaise, jam and remaining 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice to the sauce. Fold in the chicken and currants and season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until chilled for up to 1 day. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve.
