Recipe by Matt & Mollee
I couldn't find a satisfying slow cooker recipe for curry chicken, so I decided to create my own, combining the best parts of several recipes. The ingredients noted as optional can be added if you like an extra kick. I used a 6.5-quart Crock Pot for this meal, but it should fit in a 5-quart just fine.
- 3 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed & cubed
- 2 large potatoes, peeled & cubed
- 1 large onion, thinly sliced
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon gingerroot, grated
- 3 tablespoons curry powder
- 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1⁄2 tablespoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1 beef bouillon cube
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup white wine
- 12 ounces coconut milk
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup cilantro, chopped
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
Directions See How It's Made
- Place the wet ingredients into the crock (wine, coconut milk, water).
- Add spices (garlic, ginger, curry powder, cinnamon stick), peanut butter and bouillon cube, stir well.
- Salt and pepper chicken pieces as desired, then add to crock along with potatoes and onion, stir well to coat.
- Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or on high for 4 to 5 hours, stirring once or twice.
- If a thicker consistency is desired once cooked, combine cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water and mix well. Stir slowly into crock and cook an additional 15 to 20 minutes on high.
- Serve over noodles or rice of choice, garnished with cilantro.
