Chicken Curry

The slow cooker does the heavy lifting here. All you have to do is assemble this hearty coconut milk-based curry, which takes just 10 minutes.

    Incredibly bland...spent more time adding more of everything to turn it into an actual curry dish with flavor.

    I have made this again and again. It's a little mild though, for a curry. Kids will eat this. Especially nice to serve with the coriander and toasted cashews as suggested

    Nobody here will eat peas. What else can I add? Spinach?
      3 FEB, 2017
      If nobody likes peas, try bean sprouts, spinach, okra, or bell peppers and pineapple. Really, you can substitute anything your family likes. I would avoid strong or bitter flavors like Brussels sprouts or broccoli as these might overpower the coconut curry. Take a cue from Thai or Indian recipes, or use any vegetable your family usually eats. Tip: Taste your choice BEFORE you shred and return the thigh meat. If you don't like it, scoop out the chicken and strain the curry, sans substitution.

    Great recipe! I've added it to my rotation. I'll be coming back to Martha Stewart for more recipes. I seriously need to up my cooking skills, last week I doing the Sia quiz - - and I thought a vinaigrette was made using meat and potatoes! D'oh! :)

    this is super yummy and versatile. I cut chicken down to 1 lb, added 1/2 lb of shrimp and a bunch of different veggies. I used chicken broth like some of the other reviewers suggested. Don't leave out the cashews or cilantro - they take the flavor to a whole different level. And if anyone at MS ever reads the comments, could you please make it easier to use your website as far as finding recipes you've seen before and rating recipes . . . it's always such a chore compared to other websites

    This is a household favorite, with some alterations. I use about 1.5 pounds of thighs and make up the rest with potatoes and carrots, and about a cup of peas. I sauté the onions, garlic and ginger in some coconut oil and then add the spices and sauté another minute before dumping the mix in the crockpot. I also add the coconut milk at the beginning and simmer the whole thing on low all day. I usually add a bit of coconut cream (from Trader Joe's) for extra flavor and creaminess.

    This recipe is the bare bones of what you need to make a decent curry. To take this recipe from a 2 to a 10, do the following: Double your spices. Sear those chicken thighs (which *don't* have to be skinless!) along with the onions in a few tbs of butter in a good skillet (like cast iron), until a nice carmel-brown color starts to develop. Throw that into the slow cooker with 3-4 cups of homemade stock. Add desired veggies, top with generous dollop of butter, finish as written. Voila.

    I follow the first step and looked at my chicken, onions and seasonings in the crockpot and it just looked.... sad... and dry? I've made curry before and it always calls for chicken stock. So, I tripled all the seasonings (and quadrupled the curry, yummy) and added 2 cups of chicken stock. Let that cook. Then, I added the potatoes with the peas along with some carrots and jalapeños ( if you like spicy, and who doesn't?) with the rest of the ingredients. Now, we're talking!

    This recipe was easy and very pretty. Mine looked just like the photo but it was a disappointment because it was too bland. It lacked punch! I have added Sriracha hot chili sauce to make it more spicy and like the type of curry I was expecting. Next time, I will read what others said before I make it.
