Jenny’s Chicken and Apple Curry with Quinoa

Jenny’s Chicken and Apple Curry with Quinoa

1-2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed (or substitute boneless, skinless chicken thighs), seasoned to taste with kosher salt and pepper
olive oil, for searing chicken breasts
1 onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. curry powder
1/2 cup quinoa, any color
2 apples, skin-on, seeded, diced, I like to use Granny Smith
1/3 cup golden raisins
1 Tbs. brown sugar
1 cup quinoa, any color
3 cups chicken broth
1 can coconut milk
1/3 cup chopped, toasted pecans

Preheat pressure cooker to high setting; add a bit of olive oil to pot. When oil is hot, add seasoned chicken breast pieces to pot, browning off a bit on all sides; remove chicken and reserve. Add onions, garlic, curry powder, and quinoa to drippings in pot; cook for 1 minute, then add apples, raisins, brown sugar, and chicken broth, stirring to combine. Place lid onto pc and lock into place; set timer for 5 minutes on high setting; when timer goes off, use natural pressure release for 10 minutes, then quick release to release any remaining pressure in the pot. Stir coconut milk, a little at a time, until you reach the desired consistency you prefer. Top with pecans to serve.

Now You’re Cookin’,

  1. Good morning Chef Alli,
    Hope you had wonderful, blessed Easter. We did the typical “nice ham” meal. Too big of a group to use my PC.
    I notice that quinoa is listed twice in the chicken curry recipe. Can you clarify it for me?
    Sounds like a recipe we will like!
