Cook Time
Ripe pears provide sweet and tangy flavor to this incredibly easy-to-make curry that’s scented with a variety of warming spices.  Serve over Basmati rice, if desired.
  • 2 ripe USA Pears, divided
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 chicken breasts (1 ½ pounds), halved, boneless, skinless, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 can (14 ounces) coconut milk
  • ⅓ cup raisins

Peel and core 1 pear; puree and set aside.

Heat oil in large frying pan over medium heat. Add onion, curry powder, garlic, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and pepper and sauté 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are transparent.

Add chicken, and continue to sauté 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until browned. Add pureed pear, coconut milk, and raisins. Simmer for 5 minutes. Core and cut remaining pear into ½-inch cubes and add to curry. Simmer for 5 minutes and serve.

    This is absolutely Delicious! We like more curry so I used double the amount,as well as double the Garlic. I did not have coconut milk so I used Chicken broth. I did not add raisins because my Husband doesn’t like them. It is a mouth watering dish,alone or over rice.We think i will be great on garlic bread too!
