Curry Chicken with Prunes and Dried Apricots

I wasn’t a big fan of curry, until I actually tried it.

Some time ago we discovered a small family owned buffet which serves pakistani food that with no surprise comes with a lot of curry. And I like it a lot, in fact we are lunching there at least once a week.

So I wanted to try to cook with curry myself, and this is a dish I attempted first: creamy chicken with prunes and dried apricots and, of course, curry.

And it turned out great.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: wash chicken breasts and pat them dry with paper towel; I ended up using 2 onions instead of 1 on the picture:

  2. Pour boiling water into bowls with dried apricots and prunes, leave for 10 mins, then remove water:

  3. Warm up deep skillet with a tablespoon of oil over moderate heat. Peel onions, slice them into half circles and put to warmed up skillet; fry onions until colored, stir from time to time:

Made this for lunch. This turned out amazing! I added more dried prunes and apricots for more sweetness and texture. A keeper!
