Apple and Mushroom Chicken with Potato Curry

Apple and Mushroom Chicken with Potato Curry

Posted 2017-03-08 by finyfollow

The chicken casserole is a one pot dish, that can be made a day or two ahead, as works well when heated up. It would also go well with some boiled rice.

The potato and egg curried salad is a nice accompaniment with this, and I ate leftover salad for lunch for the next few days.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Serves: 4

For the chicken
8 "lovely legs" chicken (no skin)
2 apples
1 shallot
Packet mushroom soup powder
2 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tsp thyme
1 cup water
1 cup yoghurt
150 g mushrooms, halved

For the Curry Salad
2 hard boiled eggs
2 potatoes, cooked and cooled
25 g butter
½ tbsp curry powder
1½ tbsp flour
1 cup milk
Coriander, to garnish

For the chicken
  • Preheat the oven to 180°/160° fan forced.

  • Slice the onion finely.

  • Peel the apples, take out the core, and dice.

  • Put the chicken, shallot and apple pieces into a casserole dish.

  • Add the mushroom soup packet, mustard, and thyme powder.

  • Mix in the water.

  • Cover the casserole dish, and bake for an hour or until the lovely legs are tender.

  • Stir in the yoghurt and mushrooms, and mix in with the chicken.

  • Bake for another 10 to 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • For the curry salad
  • Roughly chop the eggs and cut the potatoes into cubes.

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the curry powder.

  • Cook for about 30 seconds then remove from the heat.

  • Stir in the flour, and put back on the heat and cook until it boils, and then gradually add a bit of milk, stirring in between additions until the sauce is fairly smooth.

  • Mix this in with the eggs and potatoes, add some salt and pepper to taste.

  • Serve - it could be eaten on its own as a light meal.

  • I served it with the chicken casserole.
