When she was in college, my daughter introduced me to curry dishes. Now we love the aroma of apples simmering with chicken, curry and coconut milk. —Dawn Elliott, Greenville, Michigan

"A good curry and a nice balance of savory and sweet. This could easily be made with only veggies if you want a meatless's hearty. I like my curries saucier so I used a full can of coconut milk instead of. just the one-cup called for here. I would also season the chicken with slightly more salt and pepper next time."
