Got a slow cooker? Then try this delicious chicken curry. If you don't have a slow cooker, never fear, just cook it for a long time over a gentle heat. Note: Curry pastes vary in heat rating - adjust the amounts to suit your requirements

I love crock pot dishes. They make entertaining so much easier. There seemed to be a lot of sauce so the last 45 minutes, I added in some sliced carrots and zucchini squash. The curry was served over jasmine rice. I did substitute soy sauce for the fish sauce and used 2 oz of the red curry paste. Made for Happy Hearts in the Diabetic Forum.
