For the apple curry:

  • 1/2 cup onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 apple, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/2 jalapeño, with or without seeds (or adjust to your taste); this will be mild spicy
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste ( I used ~1/2 tsp salt and a pinch of black pepper)

For grilled chicken:

  • 8 small bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 2 1/4 pounds)
  • Salt, pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Season chicken with salt.
  3. Heat a large, heavy ovenproof skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat (Note: if you don’t have a large ovenproof skillet, use a regular skillet and then transfer the chicken to a baking pan). Swirl in oil.
  4. Cook chicken, skin side down, until browned, about 5 minutes. Flip chicken, and cook it for another 5 minutes. Remove chicken from the pan.
  5. Drain excess fat, reserving 1 tablespoon.
  6. Put all the curry ingredients in a food processor and blend to a thick paste.
  7. Return chicken to a pot. Spoon some of the curry sauce over the chicken.
  8. Transfer skillet to oven. Roast, until chicken is cooked through, about 25-30 minutes. Baste the chicken with curry sauce halfway through.
  9. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with steamed rice.
