Ingredients

1 1/2 tbsp canola oil 23 mL
10 chicken thighs, boneless, skinless 650 g
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
1 tbsp curry powder 9 g
3/4 tsp ground cumin 2 g
1 apples, peeled, cored, then cut into segments 180 g
2 pears, peeled, cored, then cut into segments 300 g
1/2 cup chicken broth 125 mL
6 tbsp dried cranberries 50 g
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk 65 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 green onions/scallions, chopped [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Peel and core the apples, then cut each into segments.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a pan over high heat. Sauté the chicken pieces thoroughly on each side until golden, about 8 min. Take them out of the pan and set aside, keeping them warm in the oven.
  3. Add the remaining oil and the onion, then sauté 2-3 min until it is translucent. Stir in the spices then cook 1 min. Add the apples and pears, then cook 6-8 min with occasional stirring.
  4. Pour in the broth then put the chicken pieces back into the pan. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring the liquid to a boil, then lower the heat, cover, and simmer until the chicken pieces are tender, 12-15 min. Stir in the cranberries and coconut milk.
  5. Garnish with the green onions, then serve on the warmed plates.

Pretty nice, but it needs more "kick". The next time, I added Sriracha sauce, and like the result better.

This was okay. I'm not a huge curry fan. However, others seemed to like it. Not spicy at all.
