  • 3 chicken breasts, boned and cut into strips
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 5 ml (1 tbsp.) mild curry powder
  • 2 Quebec yellow onions, thinly sliced

  2. Heat the remaining butter the same skillet over low heat and sweat onions. Turn heat up to high and, while stirring constantly, add maple syrup, a few sprigs of rosemary, garlic and apples.
