Sweet Chicken Curry is one of my all time favourite recipes. This chicken dish has a slight sweetness with a nice mild curry flavour
I was given the basic recipe to this Curry by my Step Mother Debi. I was not much of a fan of Curry when I was younger, but this was so nice, its has become one of my favourite dishes to cook people who say they don’t like curry.
It has a nice creamy sauce that is both slightly sweet from the apples and onions, but then has that distinctive flavour you associate with a curry. There is no heat to this dish really, just great taste. It reminds me of McDonalds Curry Sauce, but just not as sweet.
I think once you taste this curry, it will be a firm favourite of yours too. I like to make it in large batches and freeze it.
If you prefer a curry with a little more kick, when adding the curry powder, use a hot version and not the mild, maybe add some finely chopped chilli too.

Melt butter in a large saucepan and fry onion & apple for a few minutes until the go slightly soft
