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.

Wow! This was soooo good. As I added each step of ingredients, it just smelled better and better. I used about 2 pounds of chicken breast, cut up. As mentioned by another reviewer, I didn't add more butter at the sauce stage. I thought there was plenty of liquid/butter left in the pan. I just set the chicken aside and added it back to the sauce after the sauce had thickened up a little bit. I used the mango chutney from JustJanS Mango Chutney, #23146. I may make this when my finicky 14yo step-son is around and let him have plain chicken with BBQ sauce and the rest of us can ENJOY this wonderful dish.
