Crock Pot Chicken Curry

New Rev Gal blogging friend, Sandy, who blogs at THE TABLE, shared this and I tried it and it was sooo yummy I'm putting it here too.

Sandy says: "This is a super-simple crock-pot curry recipe I got from my step-mom. It was absolutely delicious and perfect for this time of year when things are just starting to get a little cooler. It's not too hot but has a wonderful flavor. I'm guessing you could very easily use the same basic formula to make it with veggies if that's your thing."

10-12 pieces of chicken (or 2-3 lbs vegetables)
2 onions and 1 bell pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic
1 c. chicken stock (or vegetable if you're going that direction)
1 1/2 - 2 Tbsp Madras curry powder (depending on how spicy you like it)
1 1/2 tsp. Paprika
1 Tbsp thyme
1 can diced tomatoes
5 Tbsp tomato paste
1 jar mango chutney

Sandy continues, "The directions to this one originally said to saute the peppers and onion, but I'm lazy and I was cooking this a lot longer than what was originally instructed, so I figured no harm would be done. I was right. Everything was great just as it was! Basically, like most of my crock pot recipes, there are no steps or techniques here. Just throw it all in and let it do its thing.
The originally recommended time was about 8 hours on low. I did about 9, BUT I also took it to work with me. I put it on "warm" for about 4 hours because I knew it was already cooked. Then, in the last 45 minutes (while the rice was cooking) I cranked it up on high to let the sauce thicken a little. I'm guessing the last little bit wasn't entirely necessary, but this is one of those things that the longer it cooks, the better it gets!"

  1. Glad you enjoyed it! I realized after posting that it's supposed to have a little cayenne in it, but I think it's pretty good even without it!
