My mom tried something similar to this in a restaurant and thoroughly raved about it, so I tried to re-create it for Mother's Day. She loved this version so much that she won't order Maple Curry Chicken in restaurants anymore! Serve over your favorite pasta.

If you don't have curry paste you can use curry powder instead plus 3T ketchup of tomato paste. Also you don't need to add each thing and wait a minute. You can just caramelize the onions and add the dry ingredients, then the wet, then add chicken and cook 10 minutes in the sauce and veggie mixture. The meat will absorb the sauce better if it's cooked in it. It will come out more tender as well. If you chop the chicken in strips or chunks you can cook it for 10 minutes and it will be perfect.

We liked this very much. I used thighs in place of breasts, sour cream in place of cream cheese, and 1T of curry powder in place of paste because that's what I had on hand. The flavors all blended very well. I could see using coconut milk as well in this dish since it has a Thai flair to it. After cooking the chicken in the sauce (why bother cooking it separately?) I removed it and added about 3-4 cups of cooked brown rice I had left over from another meal to the sauce. Then I cooked them together until the sauce thickened slightly and the rice was heated through. Excellent! Adding this to our favorites list. Thank you!

Just right combo of sweet and spicy. I will make this again and again. I used an extra tablespoon of cream cheese as I did not have cream, otherwise made as written.
