Helpful hints

  • Monica recommends Swanson’s® low-sodium chicken broth. By definition, low sodium broth contains no more than 140 mg sodium per cup.
  • To prevent spills in the oven, you can cover the chicken before baking.
  • Chicken and Apple Curry is great with steamed white rice.
  • This is a high protein meal. If you are on a lower protein diet, adjust the portion according to your meal plan.
