Easy Chicken Curry

I made this dish for dinner tonight and it was fabulous!  My family really enjoyed it. I have tried a few different chicken curry recipes and I think I have found the one!  My husband would like it more spicy, but he added hot sauce to his, so he was happy!

Easy Chicken Curry

1 tablespoon butter 
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1 small green apple, peeled, cored and finely diced
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder 
1/4 cup whole milk
1 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3 cups cooked chicken

Melt butter in large skillet over medium low heat.  Cut chicken into 1/2" pieces and place in skillet.  Cook each side for just a few minutes.  Add the onion, apple and garlic and mix well, cook, covered over low heat until the onion is tender and translucent, about 12 minutes.  Then add the curry powder to the onion mixture and mix well.  Dissolve cornstarch in the milk and add it to the mixture.  Add the chicken broth and mix well.  Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened.  Add the lemon zest and lemon juice and mix well.

Serve over rice!  The recipe said you can also serve this with condiments such as chutney, raisins, diced bell peppers, cucumber, tomato, pineapple, papaya, mango, banana, kiwi, chopped scallions, hard-boiled eggs, peanuts or toasted almonds.  I didn't jazz it up at all!  We just ate steamed broccoli on the side!
