Makes 2 servings


1 tablespoon canola oil
3/4 cup chopped peeled Granny Smith apple
1/3 cup thinly sliced carrot
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon flour

Add flour, curry powder, salt, pepper and cloves. Cook and stir over medium heat 1 minute. Stir in water. Cook, stirring constantly, until liquid boils and thickens. Stir in chicken and tomatoes. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through. Stir in 2 tablespoons cilantro. Spoon into prepared casseroles.
  3. Arrange 2 breadsticks over top of chicken mixture in each casserole. Sprinkle additional cilantro over tops, if desired.
  4. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until breadsticks are browned and filling is bubbly.


Leftover breadstick dough can be refrigerated in an airtight container and reserved for another use.
