Chicken and Apple Curry

I made this dish several weeks ago and I'm ready to make it again! It's a nice twist on the usual chicken recipes.  The apple gives it a touch of sweetness and the curry a touch of spice.  It's also a nice recipe to have in the fall when there is an abundance of apples in this area.  We usually go up to Graves Mountain in Syria, Virginia and stock up on apples at their apple festival.  About that time is when I start going on a recipe hunt for anything with apples!  I can't say this is kid friendly since my son wouldn't try it but it cerainly is adult friendly!  I found this at a good old allrecipes!  So often I find a recipe there when it is featured as recipe of the day.  This was one of those.

3 tablespoons butter
2 small onions, chopped
2 apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 tablespoon curry powder
8 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup hot chicken broth
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Saute apple and onion in butter or margarine until tender.  Add curry powder and saute 1 minute more.  Add flour and continue to cook 1 minute longer.  Add stock or broth and milk; stir well.
Salt and pepper chicken breasts to taste and lay in a single layer in a 9x13 inch (or larger) baking dish. I ended up using 2 pans.

Pour sauce mixture over chicken breasts and bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, until chicken is done.
