This dish was comforting and tasty. It was definitely subtle, but the apples gave it a nice flavor, and the curry and cumin were a nice change from the types of spices my family and I usually use. I did reduce the curry to 1 tsp because my father doesn't like curry very much, but after eating it I think I might try to sneak in another tsp next time!

I used all chicken breasts and thought the apples gave the chicken a wonderful flavour. We enjoyed this tremendously and will definitely be making again. Made for ZWT4.
