This is an anitajoye original and it is delish! It's great crockpot dish. Start it in the morning and it will be ready for dinner. You can serve it over Basmatti rice, or eat alone as a soup

- 3 cups water
- 2 chicken breasts, cubed
- 2 chicken bouillon cubes

- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ginger

- Taste to season with salt and pepper and add fresh cilantro.

- Can be eaten alone or with rice.
- Can be cooked on the stove top as well, but the crockpot is easiest.
- Soooo yummy.
An easy enough dish with plenty of flavor (I added more cumin, some cumin and crushed red pepper because of other reviews - great idea). Great curry dish. Thanks for sharing!
My DH and I love this recipe! I add more garlic and cumin and and use a spicy curry powder to heat it up a bit. Very satisfying and nutritious.
I was a little hesitant about the spice combination, but I really liked this. I did add some cayenne and crushed red pepper to give it some heat because I used a mild curry powder. Great easy, tasty, healthy crockpot recipe! Thanks!
