Chicken Breasts With Apple Curry Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by pattikay in L.A.

I discovered the Loaves and Fishes Cookbook while reading through one of Ina Garten's cookbooks because she made frequent references to it. It appears to be out of print, but I found it at my local library. This dish is wonderful and like most curries, tastes even better the next day.

This was awesome; I agree it smelled so wonderful. I did do as others had suggested and roughly chopped the apples for texture, I also added red chilies and I mixed the measurements on the curry powder, between mild and hot curry powder, just personal preference. I served mine with roasted kumara and cumin seeds, it was perfect. A fantastic post and a huge success round my table tonight. This will definitely be frequenting a table often. Thanks for sharing.
