Curried Apples and Chicken
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
A hint of India peeks through in this hearty apple-and-chicken dish, spiked with lashes of hot or mild curry powder. Serve over Indian basmati rice, and pass with yogurt and flat Indian bread.
2 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
2 tsp. hot or mild curry powder, or to taste
1 onion, chopped
1 Tbs. grated fresh ginger
3/4 cup apple juice or apple cider
2 Tbs. cornstarch
1 6-oz. pkg. chicken strips
8 oz. sliced mushrooms
1 apple, cored and diced, skin on
1/2 cup dry-roasted peanuts for garnish
Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat, and stir in turmeric and curry powder. Sautee 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in onions and ginger, and cook 5 minutes more.
Pour 1/4 cup apple juice into small bowl, and whisk in cornstarch. Pour mixture and apple juice into skillet, and add chicken strips, mushrooms and apple. Cook until mixture thickens slightly, 7 to 10 minutes.
To serve, remove from heat, and spoon over rice. Sprinkle with peanuts as garnish.
