Recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Curry
What You'll Need
- 6 Red Skin Potatoes
- 1 Bell Pepper
- 1 Onion (yellow, red, or white)
- 1 Pound of Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
- 1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
- 1 can of Chicken Broth
- 1 Tablespoon of Curry Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Paprika
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Ginger
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Coriander
- 1/8 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 1/8 Teaspoon of Cloves
- 4 Tablespoons of Corn Starch (if you want a thick sauce)
Wash and cut the red skin potatoes into halves if they are the small new potato size tubers. If they are the larger size of red skin potatoes, cut them into quarters. Clean the bell pepper and dice it. Peel and dice the onion. Place the chopped potatoes, bell peppers, and onions in the crock pot.
Cut the chicken into cubes that are approximately one or two inches in diameter. Place the chicken squares on top of the vegetables in the slow cooker.
In a bowl, mix the tomatoes, chicken broth, and spices together. Pour the spiced liquid over the chicken and vegetable mixture.
Allow the dish to cook on low temperature for between 8 and 10 hours, or on the high setting for five to six hours.
If you want a thick sauce, remove the chicken and vegetables from the pot and add the 4 tablespoons of corn starch. Whisk until corn starch is dissolved, and cook on high setting for about 15 minutes, or until sauce thickens.
Return the cooked chicken and vegetable mixture to the slow cooker, and you're ready to serve and enjoy.
Serving Suggestion: Most people enjoy chicken curry served over steamed white rice. It also tastes delicious buy itself. Simply enjoy from a serving bowl, just like a soup or stew, with a side of crusty bread.
Recipe Variation: If you enjoy turkey curry, simply substitute pieces of cubed turkey cutlets for the chicken. You may also want to add in just a sprinkle of rosemary to the spice mixture to enhance the turkey flavor.
