Chicken and Apple Curry with Golden Raisins

My little family really likes curry (even my little ones, which is sometimes surprising to me). This curry recipe is yummy and so easy to make!

Chicken and Apple Curry with Golden Raisins

1 tablespoon butter
1 cup chopped and peeled Granny Smith apple
3/4 cup chopped shallots
2/3 cup diced celery
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 1/3 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 1/2 cups cooked chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Toasted coconut
Peanuts, chopped

Melt butter in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat.  Add apple, shallots, celery and garlic; sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned.  Stir in flour and curry powder; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently.  Gradually add milk, raisins and broth, stirring constantly with a whisk; bring to a boil, stirring frequently.  Reduce heat, and add chicken, salt and pepper.  Simmer until thick (about 5 minutes).  Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.  Garnish with toasted coconut and chopped peanuts.
