Harvest time brings a lot of really great vegetables and fruits that are full of flavor and not always available at other times of the year. I'm talking root veggies like beets, onions, potatoes, rutabagas, jicama, and so many more, and squashes of all shapes and sizes. But one of my most favorite fall products are apples. I love, love, love apples in all formats both sweet and savory. This year, we may have lost a lot of crops, particularly cherries and corn, but the strange weather actually produced bumper crops of cranberries and apples. So they're overflowing off the shelves at great prices.
Today, I played with apples, onions, and Indian flavor and made Chicken Curry. This is an adaptation of a Martha Stewart recipe.
1 small red onion, chopped
1 green apple, cored and chopped
2 garlic cloves chopped or grated
2 T. ketchup
2 t. curry powder
salt and pepper to taste
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 c. greek yogurt
1/4 c. chopped cilantro
Add 4 chicken breast halves. I cubed mine, but you could leave the breasts whole if you chose. Cook for five minutes. Flip chicken over if whole, stir the mixture if cubed. Microwave for another five minutes. I used the cooking time to make a pot of brown rice to go with this. Noodles or rice would be good with this dish, or wrap it in a piece of toasted Naan if you wish.
