  • 2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 stalks Celery, chopped small
  • 2 medium Carrots, chopped small
  • 1 clove Garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon Mild Curry Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Red Apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup Cooked Basmati Rice
