Baked Chicken with Curried Fruit (Middle Eastern Style) - Margaret Ullrich

Hold it!
Don't put the curry powder away just yet.

This is a nice, simple Middle Eastern recipe with a fair bit of fruit.
Both in solid and juice form.
The leftover dates can be cut up and put on your oatmeal.
They're handy to have in the kitchen.
They don't get mushy like bananas.
Dates - the perfect breakfast fruit.

Don't have cornstarch?
Three tablespoons flour equals one and a half tablespoons cornstarch.

Lentils are like rice.
If you don't have lentils, use rice.
But, really, you should expand your starch horizons.
Put a different food section on your 'Bucket List' NOW.
