Prep Time: 5 minutes - Total Time: 35 minutes
- 2 tsp vegetable oil
- 8-10 chicken thighs, bone-in and with skin
- 1 cup VH Thai Market Yellow Curry Cooking Sauce
- 2 apples, thinly sliced
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar

Heat vegetable oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Place chicken thighs skin side down in oil and brown well, about 5 minutes. Turn chicken over and brown the other side, about 3 minutes.
Remove chicken and pour off excess oil. Return chicken to pan with VH Thai Market Yellow Curry sauce and ¼ cup water. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove lid and simmer sauce to thicken if needed.
While chicken is cooking, heat butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Saute apples for 3 minutes, add brown sugar and vinegar. Continue to cook apples until softened and golden brown. Serve chicken with sauce and topped with apples and cilantro.
