    Chicken with Fruity Curry Sauce

    Homemade stock and a surprising sweetness, courtesy of bananas, is a surefire way to reinvent chicken curry. You’ll want to use bananas with yellow skin and only a few brown spots at most. The chicken is best served on a bed of rice to soak up the fruity curry sauce. The recipe can be halved to serve a smaller crowd.
