    Kid approved. I used light coconut milk and gala apples.

    This is so delicious, I love the fruit, curry and chicken flavors. I did use the skinless boneless chicken breasts too. Needed to cut back on fats for my own personal reasons but it came out very moist. I used a clay oven on low for a few hours it all came out great. I did put a squeeze of fresh orange to pick up the flavors a bit more. Next time my husband wants to try it with pork tenderloin. And toss in some cashews. One thing the was so much better the next day.

    A delicious mild curry. I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts and found the dish to be ready after 2.5 hours on low, but I suspect my slow cooker is a little fast!

    Delicious and although the prep time is a bit longer than most crock pot recipes - the resulting dish is worth it. The subsitutions I made was skipping the allspice (out of), using boneless chicken -- about 1 1/2 pounds and instead of the chicken broth (out of) used 1 cup or so of water and 2 bouillion cubes - wonderful dish that smells wonderful from the moment it goes into the crockpot to the end of the day when I walked through the door!!! Thanks for sharing this keeper!
