INGREDIENTS

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 peaches, pitted and halved
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 8-ounce package sliced mushrooms
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled, and minced
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Gala apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 2 cups cooked basmati, white or brown rice
  • ½ cucumber, sliced
  • Optional toppings: Raisins, cashews, peanuts, sliced bell pepper

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Season chicken breasts each with ½ teaspoon curry powder, salt, and pepper, and add to the grill. Cook for 6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Remove chicken then add peach halves, cut side down, and cover. Grill until peaches are soft and tender, about 4 minutes. Remove from the grill, plate, and drizzle with honey.
  2. In a large nonstick pan, warm oil over medium heat. Add onion, mushrooms, and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender. Add ¾ cup broth, cinnamon, and apple to pan and warm through.
  3. In a blender, combine milk, flour, remaining 1 teaspoon curry powder, ¼ cup broth, oregano, salt, and pepper to taste. Blend until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a small saucepan, heat over medium heat, continuously stirring with a whisk, until slightly thickened.
  4. Divide the cooked rice and chicken amongst 4 plates. Top chicken with vegetables and sauce. Arrange cucumbers along rim. Serve with grilled peaches.
