Chicken Curry over Rice

We have developed a taste for curry foods over the past several years. One quick and easy meal we prepare with curry that our kids enjoy to is S&B Golden Curry--a box of curry that can be found in your authentic cooking food section of the grocery store (We even have it at our little Red Apple--impressive)

1 to 1 1/4 lbs Chicken (lean beef, lamb or shrimp)
1 large onion finely chopped
2 Tablespoons cooking oil
2 1/2 cups water (I always add more 3 to 3 1/2 cups)
1- S&B Golden Curry sauce mix (We like to use 1-box mild and 1/2-box hot. We think this is the perfect balance or heat.)
Vegetables as desired--we use potatoes, carrots, broccoli, bell peppers, etc. My brother-in-law served in Japan on his mission and he even enjoys tossing in a tart apple diced from time to time.

Cut meat into cubes and finely chop onions. Stir-fry mean and onions in oil or butter in a large skillet until onions are lightly browned. approx 3 minutes. If you wish, add carrots, celery, bell peppers or other vegetables. Add water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until meat is tender, approx. 10 minutes. Remove from heat, break curry mix into pieces and add them to the skillet, stir until completely melted. Simmer 5 minutes stirring constantly. Serve hot over rice or noodles.
