This easy Sheet Pan Chicken & Apple Curry is a complete meal on a pan, and will fill your family up with chicken, rice, fruits and vegetables. Everything goes onto a single baking pan!
People often ask me what I eat for dinner when I don’t have a recipe to develop for a client, or a photo shoot to do that day. More often than not, the answer (especially in the fall and winter) is “whatever I can make in one skillet or on one sheet pan.” I do SO many dishes for my job throughout the work week that when it comes to dinner time for my husband and I, one pan sounds like enough (even though my husband actually enjoys doing dishes, like a weirdo).
While a one sheet pan dinner for us is often just a few chicken thighs, some brussels sprouts and a sweet potato, lately I’ve been experimenting with slightly more exotic (although still simple and still ONE pan) dinners.
This easy Sheet Pan Chicken & Apple Curry is a complete meal on a pan, and will fill your family up with chicken, rice, fruits and vegetables. Everything goes onto a single rimmed baking pan, in different stages.
The keys to this recipe are to cut the chicken small enough to cook relatively quickly (1-inch pieces work well) and to use a few pouches of microwavable basmati rice. You don’t actually need to microwave the rice first – it will cook from steam trapped under the foil on the baking pan.
I love this recipe because of the balance of flavors. The savory chicken and curry powder, combined with the sweetness of the Michigan Fuji apples and the raisins hits the spot for me. I love this curry topped with a dollop of tangy yogurt and a sprinkle of cashews.
