I have to admit, the first time I made this recipe I was a little bit skeptical because I wasn't sure anyone would like curry. I was wrong. It was a huge hit with the entire family, even my 3-year-olds ate it up. Now, I always make a larger batch. This recipe may seem intimidating, but it is rather easy and simple to make especially if you have your chicken pre-cooked and ready to go. This meal is great on its own with a side of veggies or you can serve it over brown rice.
4 cups chopped cooked chicken
2 tbs olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped peeled apple
1 16 oz can stewed tomatoes with their own juice
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 tsp lemon juice
optional garnishes: toasted coconut, mandarin oranges, raisins
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
Add onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes.
Add apple, tomatoes and their juice, broth, lemon juice, and curry powder.
Simmer, uncovered for 35 minutes.
Add chicken and heat through, about 5 minutes.
Serve with assorted garnishes on the side.
