In this recipe, you’ll see vegetable oil instead of butter or margarine or lard. Solid fats contain saturated fat, either because they came from animal sources (butter or lard) or because they have been hydrogenated (shortening or margarine).

5 roaster drumsticks

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 medium apples (diced 2 cups)

3/4 cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tablespoon curry powder

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

1-1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

3 tablespoons cold water

1-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

Remove and discard skin and visible fat from drumsticks. In large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add drumsticks; cook about 15 minutes, turning until browned on all sides. Remove; drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat. Add apple, onion, garlic, curry, ginger and pepper; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in broth. Return chicken to skillet; reduce heat to medium low. Simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally for 40 minutes or until chicken is tender and cooked through. Remove chicken to platter; keep warm.

In cup, blend water and cornstarch until smooth; stir into skillet. Over medium heat, bring to boil; boil 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Spoon sauce over chicken.
