Crock Pot Chicken Vindaloo (Ww 5 Pts. Per Serving)

"From a Weight Watcher's Crock Pot cookbook. I haven't tried it yet but copied from my friend's book. The recipe states that Vindaloo is a spicy Indian curry usually made with lamb, but chicken is equally delicious. Prepared curry paste can be very spicy, so start with the minimum amount; then, when the dish is done, taste the broth and add the remaining paste if desired. *Any frozen vegetable blend will work with the recipe as long as there are no sauces or butter added."

  • In single layers, place onion, potatoes and chicken in a 5-6 quart slow cooker.
  • Sprinkle with salt.
  • Combine the broth, curry paste, and curry powder in a medium bowl; pour over the chicken and vegetables.
  • Cover and cook until the chicken and potatoes are fork tender, 4-5 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.
  • About 35 minutes before cooking is done, stir the broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and coconut milk into the slow cooker.

    We love curries - and the slow cooker is my best friend, so I was so excited to find this recipe. Unfortunately, I would have to agree with the previous viewer who found it to be too bland. I added a heaping tablespoon of the red curry paste, and the full amount of curry, so I didn't go easy on the spices. Next time I will look at some other curries to see what my options are as far as spices go. I added my frozen vegetables about 45 minutes before we ate, and they, as well as the rest of the recipe other than the spiciness, was great! Will work with this to see if I can boost the flavor.

    This is definitely yummy! I ended up with the whole 3 tsp of red curry paste and even then it didn't have a huge kick, just good taste. Next time I will cook the veggies for more than 30 minutes, they were still quite crunchy after 30 minutes.

    We really enjoyed this recipe. It's quick, easy, and tastes great. I used the minimum amount of curry paste until we took out the kids portions, then we kicked it up for the adult servings. Thanks for the recipe, Oolala.


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
