4 boned and skinned chicken breasts
2 T. butter
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 apple, peeled and chopped
1/2 banana, thinly sliced
1 large garlic clove, minced
1-1 1/2 T. real soy sauce
2-3 T. tomato puree
1 can crushed tomatoes with liquid
1 T. curry
optional: sambal olek (chili paste found on the Asian food aisle) Use at your discretion. I use about 1/4 of a teaspoon and that is plenty to add some heat

Melt butter in a large sauce pan. Add the chicken, onions, apple, garlic and curry. Brown it all for several minutes.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan. Bring it to a boil, then let simmer for 25 minutes. Stir occasionally.

I have also done this in the crockpot with a rotisserie chicken. I throw everything in the crockpot with a shredded rotisserie chicken, and let it all simmer for several hours.

Serve with rice or couscous (we also thought it was good with pasta). To cut the heat serve with sour cream or natural yogurt (drain it by placing in a coffee filter for several hours before serving).
