  • Active Time 10m
  • Total Time 55m

Makes 4 servings

Chutney is a catch-all term used for any number of pickled fruit or vegetable combinations. Usually chutneys are highly spiced, as is this streamlined version.


  • For the Chicken:
  • 2 pounds chicken thighs, skinned, if desired
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • For the Chutney:
  • 2 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 2 tart cooking apples, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup currants or raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt



Rinse the chicken and pat dry. In a large skillet, heat the cooking oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken thighs and brown quickly on both sides. Spoon off the fat.


In a large mixing bowl, stir together the tomatoes, apples, jalapeno pepper, currants or raisins, pepper, onion, vinegar, sugar, ginger and salt. Add to the skillet with the chicken. Bring to boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for about 35-40 minutes, or till the chicken is tender and no pink remains. Remove the chicken from the skillet; keep warm. Boil the tomato-apple mixture, uncovered, for about 5 minutes, or till thickened. Serve with the chicken.
