  • Add garlic, ginger, curry powder, salt, pepper and a pinch of cinnamon; cook, stirring for 2 minutes, or until onion is softened.
  • Add the chicken thighs; brown for 5 minutes on each side, adding more oil if necessary to prevent burning, leave in the pot.

  • In a bowl, whisk flour into milk or half and half cream.
  • Gradually stir in the milk/flour mixture with the chicken stock into the pot.
  • Add in the chopped carrots.
  • Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly.
  • Reduce heat to med-low; cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the chicken is no longer pink, and carrots are tender.
  • Stir in apples; cook, uncovered, for 5-7 minutes or until heated through, and stew is thickened.

    We simply love this recipe. I've made it a few times now and everyone enjoys it! Tonight we had the first batch from the freezer that I put up several weeks ago. Just perfect. Thanks for posting!

    YUM!!!! This was so good! It smelt so go when I was cooking it, I couldn't wait to eat it. I used chicken breasts, potatoes, carrots, and red peppers. When it started to simmer I didn't think there was enough liquid so I added more chicken broth, but I shouldn't have, it ended up a little too liquidy in the end.

    The flavors in this dish are outstanding. I used both white wine and lemon juice, 1 TBL of oil, red potatoes instead of sweet potatoes, pre-cooked chicken and red pepper flakes. I might have done something wrong because mine seemed a little dry so I kept adding more milk, broth and white wine until it was a nice consistency. I think it would be terrific over basmati rice. This is wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

    A bit of an apple glut here and I'm now using them at every meal. :) Saw this recipe and loved the combination of ingredients but needed to make a few changes to make it a bit leaner and consistent with my food program. I reduced the amount of oil to 1 tablespoon with no problem; replaced the chicken thighs with 1 pound of cubed boneless, skinless breasts; added about 3 cups of the carrots and sweet potatoes; replaced the whole milk with a combination of skim milk and fat free evaporated milk; skipped the flour and added a teaspoon of arrowroot in the final two minutes. Looks like a lot of changes but none of them compromised the wonderful flavors of this dish. Directions were perfect and everything was cooked just right and the flavors beatifully blended in the end. Will certainly be making this again soon. Thanks Kittencal.

    I rated this as a 10 star yumm. It's perfect comfort food for my HH. And one can use a package of that ground turkey that is so popular at the meat counter just now and it doesn't decrease the taste at all. There are layers of flavors here, just like I like, so your taste buds love u, too. Some crusty bread and your good to go.
