Curried Chicken Thighs with Apples and Mushrooms

Curried Chicken Thighs with Apples and Mushrooms

Here is another delicious and easy curry dish! I use a sweet curry so that the dish is flavorful, but not spicy. Use whatever kind of curry is your favorite.  Feel free to add in raisins or any other dried fruit, nuts, peppers — be creative!  I serve curry over rice, but noodles will work as well.  The gravy in this recipe is delicious so just make sure to have something to eat it with!
