Curried Apple Chicken Stir Fry

This is a variation of Gluten-Free Goddess’ Chicken Curry Apple Stir-Fry recipe.

This is easy to make and tastes pretty close to restaurant Thai food. I used elbow rice noodle pasta instead of rice, but I’m sure any kind of rice noodle will work for this dish.


2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon red or green Thai Kitchen curry paste, hot or mild to taste (start with less if you prefer it mild)

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

2 heaping cups finely shredded cabbage

3 large carrots, sliced into matchsticks or grated

1 apple, peeled, cored, chopped thin

1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice, more if needed

1/4 cup golden raisins

2 generous cups of cooked chicken pieces

Pre-cooked rice (frozen or freshly made), or rice noodles (I used elbow rice pasta)

Sweet chili sauce or slivered almonds, if desired (I used Grama’s Sweet Chili Sauce)


1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Warm the olive oil and curry seasoning. Add the garlic and stir briefly.

2. Add in the shredded cabbage, carrots, and apple. Stir and cook for five minutes.

3. Add a half cup of apple juice and cook until the vegetables and apples are tender-crisp, about seven minutes. If you need a splash more apple juice, add it in. (If you don’t have apple juice, try using some cranberry juice or a little lemon juice and water.)

4. Add the raisins, cooked chicken pieces, and cooked rice or pasta. Stir-fry until all the juice is absorbed and the chicken is heated through.

5. Serve immediately with a garnish of slivered almonds or sweet chili sauce, if desired.
