I love chicken korma, but wanted a crockpot method to make it... and here's what I came up with! Rich, aromatic, and wonderfully tasty, I'm really pleased with this recipe and hope you like it, too! (For my other chicken korma recipes, take a look at Julie's Baked Chicken Korma & Rice and Julie's Chicken Korma.)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs or 2 cups cubed boneless skinless chicken breasts or 2 cups skinless boneless turkey breasts
- 1 cup uncooked white rice
- 3 cups water
- 3 teaspoons chicken bouillon powder
- 2 tablespoons dried onion flakes
- 8 ounces sliced mushrooms (optional, but very tasty!) (optional)
- 4 tablespoons smooth cashew butter (warmed in microwave to soften)
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne, to taste
- 3 teaspoons turmeric
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 3 teaspoons ground cardamom
- 1 (13 1/2 ounce) can coconut milk
- 1/2 cup half-and-half
- 1Stir together all ingredients except for the coconut milk and half and half in the crock pot.
- 2Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or until rice is tender, stirring well every couple of hours.
- 330 minutes before serving add in the coconut milk and the half and half, stir well, and let cook for another 30 minutes (you can add more half/half or chicken broth if the mixture needs more liquid).
- 4Makes about 4 servings.
- 5You can also add cauliflower pieces into the recipe to stretch it and it tastes great! I've also added cubes of extra firm tofu when I add the coconut milk, and those taste great, as well.
- 6Note: I recommend using a type of rice that stands up well to slow-cooking, such as Uncle Ben's; Thai rice, for instance, will turn into mush if it slow cooks for too long. Either that, or cook the rice separately and you'll have lots of tasty sauce for the meal!
