The distinctive combination of curry, ginger, and fruit gives this classic
Southern
dish its character.
2 medium-size Granny Smith apples
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 small green bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
2 tablespoons dried currants
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1 can (about 14 1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes
6 small skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 3/4 lbs.
total)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup long-grain white rice
1 pound large raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
1/3 cup slivered almonds
Salt
Chopped parsley
-Quarter, core, and dice unpeeled apples. In a 4-quart or larger
electric slow cooker, combine apples, onion, bell pepper, garlic,
currants, curry powder, ginger, and red pepper; stir in tomatoes. Rinse
chicken and pat dry; then arrange, overlapping pieces slightly, on top
of tomato mixture. Pour in broth. Cover and cook at low setting until
chicken is very tender when pierced (6 to 7 hours).
-Carefully lift chicken to a warm plate, cover lightly, and keep warm in
a 200 degree oven. Stir rice into cooking liquid. Increase cooker heat
setting to high; cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until rice is
almost tender to bite (30 to 35 minutes). Stir in shrimp, cover and
cook until shrimp are opaque in center; cut to test (about 10 more
minutes).
-Meanwhile, toast almonds in a small nonstick frying pan over medium
heat until golden brown (5 to 8 minutes), stirring occasionally. Set
aside.
-To serve, season rice mixture to taste with salt. Mound in a warm
serving dish; arrange chicken on top. Sprinkle with parsley and
almonds.
Makes 6 servings.
