I got this recipe on another homeschool message board ages ago from a hs mom named Melanie. |
Put chicken pieces and 1/2 an onion (chopped) in a slow cooker. The sauce easily makes enough for 12 pieces of chicken - use whatever you have.
2-3 T curry
2 cloves garlic, crushed
14-oz light coconut milk
juice of 2 limes
14.5 oz diced tomatoes (I prefer the no-salt variety) or some chopped fresh tomato if they are in season
1 t salt (omit if tomatoes have salt)
3/4 t freshly ground pepper
2 T sugar (cuts the acid, you could reduce if you wish)
Pour over chicken.
Cook 1 hour on high, then low til chicken is tender. I serve it with brown rice and green beans. (Melanie puts the green beans in the slow cooker, too, but I prefer them separate.)
This recipe is very versatile. I usually use 8 pieces of chicken and have lots of yummy curry sauce leftover. This goes into the freezer and I use it either for a soup base or to pour over pork chops in the slow cooker.

Can you tell me about how long you cook it on low? Is it a 5 hour recipe? One hour on high and four on low?
I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. ~Phil 3:13-14~
