Chicken Apple Curry  
Hi all!

I'm new to the com, and winter_in_asia suggested I add this to the com. I got the idea from eDiets, and modified it some.

1/2 tsp. curry powder
1/2 small apple
1/4 cup apple juice
4 oz. boneless chicken breast
2 green onions
4 oz. fresh mushrooms
1/3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup low fat or nonfat, plain or sugar-free yogurt
1/4 cup sliced almonds or walnuts

Prepare rice according to recipe provided. Wipe mushrooms with a damp paper towel and slice thin. Rinse and pat dry chicken breast; cut into cubes on a separate cutting board. Peel, core and dice apple and chop green onion. Spray a nonstick skillet lightly with cooking spray and sauté chicken until no longer pink, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the apple, onion, mushrooms, lemon juice and apple juice and bring to a boil. Lower heat, add curry powder and yogurt and gently heat through, about 2-3 minutes. Serve over rice. Yeilds one serving.

Misty's Commentary:
I added way more curry, because curry is good, and omitted the onions since I am alergic. I got the idea to add walnuts since it needed something... extra. This was a GREAT meal, and quick, too. The only thing that took a while was defrosting the chicken (last minute meal) and slicing up the apples. I made a double batch, and used 1/2 cup red delicious and 1/2 cup granny smith for color. The great thing about this recipe is that, more than likely, you already have 3/4 of the ingredients on hand, and it keeps pretty well. If you are particularly on-the-go, you can get the 90 second microwave-in-the-bag rice. Though I'd be happy to find something other than rice to put this on. Any ideas?

Having not made the recipe myself, I couldn't say if this would be good or not. However.

Things to put Curry on (gleaned from living in Japan):

- Brown Rice
- Toasted slices of thick bread.
- Pasta
- Put some in bread dough and fry it. Make a pocket for the curry and the bread will puff right around it.
