Chicken Curry with Apples and Raisins

Chicken Curry with Apples and Raisins by The Mommy Games

So it has been busy, busy, busy around our house! We moved at the end of last week, and even though it was only a total of 14 floors, moving takes a heck of a lot of work. Thank goodness for my in-laws, brother-in-law, and husband who all pitched in to watch the kids, organize (we had people pack and unpack but I pretty much found clothes in the kitchen), hang pictures, and make many, many trips to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Things are no less crazy today as we have a construction crew in doing all kinds of last minute work. Tequila shots at 10 am sounds just about right to me.

Needless to say, I am going to need some time to chill after all this hoopla and am all about the easy dinner. Although I’ve posted a lot of chicken recipes lately, it’s not really my go-to protein. I’m way more of a beef girl. At the end of the day, I need something that isn’t just delicious and flavorful, but that has a soul-satisfying character to it. No dinners of poached fish and steamed veggies in this house (much to my waistline’s chagrin). I often find chicken can lack that extra comfort food “hug,” so if I’m making something with chicken you better believe it’s going to be amped up a few notches.

This chicken dish really hits my comfort/flavor/easy peasy requirements, and is totally kid friendly. Do not fear the curry. It’s just the right amount of flavoring and even my picky toddler loved it. The yogurt on the side is surprisingly good and not to be skipped. Some heated up frozen naan that’s been smothered in butter also isn’t a bad thing. This is a great way to branch out of a chicken rut without scarring off the little ones (be sure to mention there are raisins in it!).



  1. Sounds so flavorful & delicious!! I get bored with chicken so I love this! Moving with two little ones must be hard..we have to do it twice within the next different states..Im really not looking forward to it haha Any tips?! :)

    • Twice in 1 year?! That’s really hard, but maybe the kids will think of it as an adventure. :) Something that really worked for me was to create organized “basket” systems. So like I categorized a bunch of items in our closets and pantry into different bins, so that there weren’t a lot of loose items. When we moved we just slipped them all back onto the shelf and everyone knew where to find everything (I labeled them – I have a serious label maker addiction). Also with the kids I found you definitely had to divide and conquer. Since the kids can’t really be around the packing/un-packing, I would have someone take them to the park or outside while I got stuff done. If you can find help like that it would make things so much easier! Good luck hun, that’s not an easy situation!

  2. I love curry but dad does not. Maybe I’ll stress the apples and raisins along with that it came from your website!

    • Oh Lord, don’t blame me if he doesn’t like it! Just have a few hotdogs in the fridge just in case. :)

  3. I love curry and add it to just about anything. I’ve never made Chicken Curry with apples and raisins, but that sounds amazing!

    • Thanks Elaine! I don’t make curry often, but considering what a hit it was I probably should. :)

  4. This looks delicious!!! I bet I could use faux chicken and it would come out delicious that way too ! :)

    • If you do, let me know how it turns out! I bet it would totally work, but I don’t have much experience in that department.

  6. As a kid, I loathed chicken curry. My mother scarred me, because she made it often and for whatever reason, I just hated it. Fast forward to being a mature adult, I’m starting to appreciate yellow curry. My husband is relieved, because he loves it. He loves raisins, too. I think this could be an easy work night dinner, that he’d love. Thanks!

    • Thanks Deb! I think we all have that “scarred for life” food, mine is pork chops. My mother is a great cook, but for whatever reason I just couldn’t stand the things and I still get wary around pork unless it’s dressed up. :)
