Easy To Make Crock Pot Curry Chicken

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!!

image

I really loved this dish. It was simple to make. It’s the type of dish you can make ahead if entertaining because it just taste better the longer the flavor’s meld together. Making this dish in the crock pot….totally reduced my fear of making curry. You can’t go wrong with this.

Let’s get started and you can see for yourself……

Ingredients:

2 pounds of organic boneless chicken cut into 1″ pieces (I used thighs, but breasts or a combo would work as well.)
1 3/4 C of coconut milk (or 14 oz. container)
1  medium yellow onion (diced)
1 C organic diced pepper ( I use a organic frozen mix blend of yellow, red & green)
1 tsp pink himalayan sea salt
4 Tbs curry powder
2 Tbs organic corn starch + 2 Tbs water (mixed together in a small bowl)

Method:

In a medium bowl add coconut milk, salt, curry powder & corn starch mixture. Whisk everything together.

Add your chicken, onion, peppers & curry sauce. Stir to get everything evenly mixed.

Set your crock pot on low for 8 hours or high for 3- 3.5 hours.

* You can also add celery, carrots and potatoes into the crock pot if you desire.

This is a very versatile dish. Using the crock pot makes for simple and practically worry free cooking. This is a healthy home cooked meal that anyone can make and will enjoy.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I truly appreciate it.

Until Next Time,

Say No To Bland and Mushy Veggies

Hello all,

I realized that I have yet to share how I make my veggies.  My goal when cooking is full flavor, low sodium and as healthy as I can. This recipe is great for a beginner as well as the person short on time.  This takes less than 10 minutes to make, how great is that. This recipe has been kids adult tested and approved. So let’s get started.

Ingredients:

1 Bag of Frozen Broccoli and Cauliflower (without any assed sauce or seasonings). I always have frozen veggies on hand it’s just very convenient. I also try to buy organic frozen veggies as often as I can. But…I no longer beat myself if organic is not available.

1 TBS of Braggs Amino Acid
I prefer amino acid over soy sauce or tamarind because it’s a lot lower in sodium. Even lower than sea salt.

1/2 tsp black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder

1 tsp of oil of choice ( I used Grapeseed….it’s just the one I’m favoring lately.)

Directions:

Mix your black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder together in a small bowl.

In a pan add your oil and place on medium-high heat.

Once your oil is ready, add your bag of frozen broccoli. Put a top to cover for 2 minutes.

After the 2 minutes add the Amino Acid and stir to evenly incorporate.  Cover again for 3 minutes.

The 3 minutes are up remove the top an add your seasonings.  Stir to evenly combine. Place the top back on for 2 additional minutes.

Remove from the heat. 

You will have great stir-fry veggies that will make a great side to almost any main dish.

This goes great with a recipe that I have for Sticky Wings. To complete your meal simply make some brown rice. You will have a meal that looks like you slaved for several hours in the kitchen.

Enjoy and until next time,
