Chicken breasts stay moist when cooked in the microwave on a bed of onion and apple. Ketchup, curry powder, and yogurt make a sweet, mildly spicy, and creamy sauce.

Re: CAS_Smith The image used for this recipe is not of the actual recipe. It's for a slow-cooker thai Chicken Curry that is also on Martha's website - which I make frequently and is pretty delicious, with a few adjustments (adding some spicy green chiles and additional garlic/ginger). The round things are green peas.

Another thing: took 20 minutes in the microwave to be completely cooked, turning over the breasts every 5 minutes. To have them in 10, I think you should slice the chicken breasts before cooking them. This could be another nice way to serving them.

Delicious!! what I added and it is not in the recipe but you could see in the plate photo are caju nuts. At the end, along with the plain yogurt. Nice touch!
