I doubled the sauce but only put in three tablespoons of curry. Next time I will reduce it to 2 1/2 tablespoons. The sweetness from the apple and banana were great. The fruit adds to the flavor but does not overpower the dish. Three chicken breasts were used. I had frozen shrimp which were added in the last two minutes.

  1. Remove any bones or skin from the chicken breasts. Cut into 1 inch cubes. There should be about 3 cups chicken and 2 cups shrimp all together. Set aside.
  2. Heat half the butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat and add onion and garlic. Cook about 1 or 2 minutes, then add celery. Cook another minute then season with curry powder and stir. Add the tomato paste; stir. Add banana and apple; stir. Add the broth and stir until liquid is well blended. Salt to taste and simmer 10 minutes.
  3. Heat the remaining butter in a saucepan. Add the chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Cook about 2 to 3 minutes. Add shrimp and cook an additional 2 minutes, stirring.
  4. Meanwhile, pour the curry mixture into the bowl of a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Can also be done with an immersion blender.
  5. Pour the sauce over the chicken and shrimp, heat 2 minutes and serve.
