Curried Chicken With Apples

This is spicy, but not too spicy. It's full of flavor and no one ingredient is overpowering. I think it'd be great over plain rice. This is from an old Cooking Light cookbook (1987).

I picked this recipe, because I wanted something to serve my Korean friends, who are used to really hot food. I think they will like this. It has a stronger curry flavor than many "curry" dishes I have tried. The red pepper flakes give it an extra tang. My husband said it was between Korean and Indian cuisines.

Wonderful recipe... I did make a few minor changes: I had homemade chicken stock to use up and used that instead of the bouillon cubes and water, and a complete search of my spices revealed that I was out of curry powder so I opened a jar of red curry paste and used 1 Tablespoon of that instead. The resulting taste was spicy and certainly sinus clearing but not too overwhelmingly so and the one any only reason that I couldn't give this 5 stars was that DH is not big on fruit or fruity tastes in recipes: he will try anything once, so I do try to see if we can find something like this that he will really enjoy and he gave this the so so thnmbs up, but if he's given a preference this is not a recipe he would choose. That's such a pity because if he liked it more I could eat this REALLY often. Please see my rating system, an excellent 4 star recipe that would have gotten 5 stars if fussy DH had shown a bit more enthusiasm. Thanks!
