Chicken Curry is definitely one my favorite dishes. I love how it smells, I love how it tastes, I love how easy it actually is to prepare. The apple lends a mild, sweet flavor to the dish. It is filling too. May seem like a long list of ingredients, but they are common things a well-stocked pantry has. This is my signature recipe. A Win all around. Serves 6.

1 pound chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces (or any chicken part you like)
2 apples, cored and diced
1 can coconut milk
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp minced garlic (or garlic powder)
1 tbsp crushed ginger (or powdered ginger)
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 cup sugar (more if you wish)
1 can diced tomatoes (or 5 fresh tomatoes, chopped)
1 bell pepper, seeded and sliced (any color you prefer)
Nonstick Spray (or 1 tbsp vegetable oil)

Spray your pan with the nonstick spray, or add the oil. Heat and add the garlic, onions and ginger. Saute for about a minute or so, and add the chicken. Saute till chicken turns white. Add your apples, black pepper, red pepper flakes, sugar, bell pepper, tomatoes and coconut milk. Give it a good stir and let it simmer for about 25 minutes on medium. Serve with the rice of your choice. Even a veggie on the side.

Now the second way to cook this is with a slow cooker. And it's maddeningly simple - just toss everything in the pot, and set on low for about 6-8 hours, high for 3-4 hours.

Tip: It would be good to add 3 tbsp flour or cornstarch dissolved in a half cup of water to food like this when you cook using a crock pot. The slow cooking process usually tends to keep a lot of moisture in, causing food to be on the watery side, and you would want to thicken that up. So add the dissolved flour, stir, and cover for 5-10 minutes before serving.

It's awesome to come home to this after work, instead of fast food! 

YUM! And only 6 points a serving. Isn't that awesome?
