Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Stir together garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin and mustard seeds in a small bowl; set aside.

  • Toss chicken with flour in a medium bowl until evenly coated. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and saute until well-browned on all sides, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  • Add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil and apple to the pan. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring, until apples are lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the reserved spice mixture. Stir until the apples are tender and the garlic is fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add broth and the reserved chicken; increase heat to medium-high. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until the sauce is slightly thickened and the chicken is no longer pink inside, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with cilantro (or parsley).

excellent flavors I tried this because I had a piece of fresh ginger I needed to use and the chicken and apples sounded yummy. I used half teaspoons of the spices it called for but the full amount of garlic and ginger the flavor was awesome. Will definitely make again. Read More
