Apple Chicken with Green Beans

My daughter is very choosy about foods. Outside foods are the tastiest food to her. Everyday her appetite demands for new kind of foods. My each morning starts with a frown and a tensed face what new meal, am going to cook after her taste. She doesn’t like vegetables or fruits except green beans, spinach and banana. So every time I have to cook a healthy food which can supply nutrition to her body, in such a way, that she should not see what the ingredients are added to the dish. Chicken is one of her favourites. So last night I cooked chicken with apple and green beans. I served this to her with plain noodles, which she liked very much. The dish turned out very tasty and as well as healthy too. The dish doesn’t take much time to cook. This is a very healthy dish for the kids as well as for the adults too. The recipe is as follows-
Ingredients:-

Chicken- 6-8 pieces (Medium, with bone)
Chopped garlic- 1 table spoon full
Garlic paste- 1 tea spoon
Onion – 1 medium (sliced)
Green Beans- a handful
Yoghurt- 2 tea spoon
Apple- 1 medium (I used green apple)
Oil- 2 table spoons
Salt, sugar and pepper- according to taste


Method-
1. Marinate the chicken with the yoghurt and little bit of salt for 10 mnts.

2. Heat 2 table spoons of oil in a pan, add the chopped garlic. When it will turn brown put the onion. Fry them till the onion turns golden.

3. Add the ginger and the chicken. Sauté for few mnts. Put a lid on. Keep on stirring in low heat in intervals.

4. Grind the skinned apple in to a paste. When the chicken seems semi cooked add the apple. Add salt, sugar and pepper according to taste. Stir nicely. Keep on cooking with the lid on. After 5mnts add the whole green beans.

5. When the chicken is fully cooked and the juice is dried up, serve it with bread/roti/rice/noodles whatever you and your baby likes.
