Creamy Apple Curry Chicken.

When you think curry, chances are potatoes and chicken come to mind. But we think you also should consider apples.

Though not necessarily a traditional touch for curry, apples work deliciously well with the big, spicy flavors of the dish. In fact, there is very little that is traditional about the curry we have assembled here, but we’re not all that worried about it. It’s so delicious, the name almost seems irrelevant.

A quick saute of vegetables and chicken – along with those aforementioned apples – is tied together with a creamy curry sauce. To keep the autumnal feel, we threw in some dried cranberries and topped it with toasted almonds. We also served it over rice, but you could opt for egg noodles.
