Indian Style Chicken with Apples

Just in case, anyone does not know my secret, it is that I don’t like to repeat recipes, no matter how good, they are.  It is not the best method but with all my cookbooks and recipes from bloggers, I have an unlimited amount of recipes, I want to make.  There are foods like salmon and chicken which we eat weekly and at this point, while there are many new recipes, most are similar to what I have made, before.

I was happy when I found this one on  I love Indian seasonings and often add them to other dishes.  Apples always make me happy in main and side dishes as well as desserts.  This sounded good.  I made a few changes and we had a worthy meal for dinner.

Indian Style Chicken with Apples


    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into strips
    • 1 large sweet onion, diced
    • 2 apples – peeled, cored and sliced
    • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
    • 1 teaspoon curry powder
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup chicken broth (from soup bubbling on the stove)
    • 1 cup Tofutti sour cream to replace the dairy yogurt
    •  pepper to taste


    1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the chicken until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
    2. Add the onion and apple to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Cook and stir until the onions are translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the bell pepper; continue to cook and stir for another 5 minutes. Season with curry powder and cinnamon; cook for a few more minutes to intensify the flavors.
    3. Stir in the chicken broth and Tofutti sour cream. Return chicken to the skillet and simmer for a few minutes to heat through. Remove from the heat, season to taste with salt and pepper, and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.Prep time was only a few minutes and everything went smoothly.  This is an easy recipe.

Apple Spice Crumb Cake

This recipe called for mayonnaise.  It is a Hellman’s recipe.  I subbed applesauce and oil for the mayo.  I would cut the oil, next time, and it will be just as good.

Serves: 16
Prep Time: 20 Minute(s)
Cook Time: 50 Minute(s)
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. baking soda
4 large eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and chopped
I did not make the topping.  I sliced an additional apple and placed it on top of the batter.
1. For Apple Cake, preheat oven to 350°. Grease 13  x 9-inch baking pan; set aside.
2. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, spices and baking soda; set aside.
3. In medium bowl, with wire whisk,  beat eggs, Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise and vanilla until smooth.
4. Toss apples with flour mixture, then stir in mayonnaise mixture until combined. Dough will be stiff.  Evenly spread into prepared pan.
I have only had a piece warm and it was great.  Try it warm and cold.
