Curry-Sauced Chicken

I was sort of running a little high on my calories for the day, and needed something low-calorie for dinner. Enter the Better Homes and Gardens Calorie-Trimmed Recipes cookbook. At only 171 calories per serving, this dish was deliciously satisfying.

3/4 cup water
1/2 cup chopped apple
2 tbsp. sliced green onion
1 tsp. instant chicken bouillon granules (or 1 cube)
1 tsp. curry powder
1 small clove garlic, minced
Dash pepper
2 whole chicken breasts, skinned and halved lengthwise (we actually didn't have chicken breasts, I just used 1 leg quarter)
1 4-oz. can sliced mushrooms
1 tbsp. cornstarch

1 a 10-inch skillet combine water, apple, green onion, bouillon granules, curry powder, garlic, and pepper; bring to boiling. Add chicken; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or till chicken is tender. Remove chicken to warm platter. Drain mushrooms, reserving 1/3 cup liquid. Combine 1/3 cup mushroom liquid and cornstarch; stir into pan juices. Cook and stir over medium heat till bubbly. stir in the mushrooms. Spoon sauce over chicken.
