Cat’s Chicken Apple Curry is a delectable, sweet-savory dish that makes the most out of skinless chicken breasts. It’s one of those quick to throw together meals that taste as if they’ve been simmering for hours. Put on the brown rice before you start the curry, and it will be ready to serve by the time you’e finished making the curry.
