Indian Appleous 500

I was lucky enough to receive The Looneyspoons Collection cookbook this Christmas and, if you haven't realized already, the book has the greatest recipe names ever!!  The one that I tried out this weekend was called Indian Appleous 500 and is an Indian coconut curry chicken with chopped apples.  It was very yummy and the perfect warm meal for the chilly days we've been having.  For those of you that have the Looneyspoons cookbook, I definitely recommend trying this one out.  For those of you who don't, I've included my version of the recipe below (I altered it a bit based on what I had in my pantry).  Enjoy!

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 450g boneless, skinless chicken breast ( 2 large chicken breasts), cut into pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large red pell pepper, chopped
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp grated gingerroot
  • 1 1/2 tsp curry powder and chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric and ground cinnamon
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup mango chutney
  • lemon zest of two lemons
  • 2-3 dashes of salt
  • 1 large golden delicious apple, peeled, cored and chopped into large pieces
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
Heat the olive oil in a saucepan.  Add the chicken and cook until lightly browned.  Remove the chicken.  Add the onions, red pepper and garlic to the saucepan and cook until they begin to soften.  Add the gingerroot, curry powder, chili powder, turmeric, and cinnamon.  Cook for about 1 minute.  Stir in the coconut milk, mango chutney, lemon zest and salt.  Then stir in the chicken pieces and apples.  Cover and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.  Add the peas and cilantro and simmer uncovered for 5 more minutes.  Serve over rice.
