I prefer a sweet curry like this so I really enjoy the bits of cooked apple and raisins in this version.

This is so delicious, I love the fruit, curry and chicken flavors. I did use the skinless boneless chicken breasts too. Needed to cut back on fats for my own personal reasons but it came out very moist. I used a clay oven on low for a few hours it all came out great. I did put a squeeze of fresh orange to pick up the flavors a bit more. Next time my husband wants to try it with pork tenderloin. And toss in some cashews. One thing the was so much better the next day.

A delicious mild curry. I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts and found the dish to be ready after 2.5 hours on low, but I suspect my slow cooker is a little fast!
