Chicken Curry with Spiced Apples

Chicken Curry with Fried Apples

Tired of the usual fried chicken? If so, try my personal chicken curry recipe.

It's not original Indian, it's not from any great gourmet, it's just how I like to eat chicken with some spicy flavor without burning my tongue or drowning in the grease.

Ingredients (serves 4)
1¾ lb. chicken breast
4 tablespoons of clarified butter
1 teaspoon of curry powder
2 apples
½ teaspoon of ginger powder
½ teaspoon of coriander powder
½ teaspoon of cinnamon powder
2 tablespoon of crème fraiche

Clean the chicken from any fatty part and chop it into pieces. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a pan then add the meat together with the curry powder and some salt to taste. Let it sauté over small-medium heat until well cooked inside. In the meanwhile peel the apples, remove their cores and slice them horizontally. Melt the other 2 tablespoons of butter in another pan and add the apple slices together with ginger, cinnamon and coriander powders. Also in this case you have to carefully control the heat so that the fruits will gently sauté until soft. Serve well warm on the same plate, pouring the crème fraiche over the chicken meat.

For me this is something new and different. But then again, it's not unlike serving spicy chutney with curry and yogurt. Not such a deviant after all LOL Very interesting and lovely presentation!
