Slow-Cooked Curry Chicken
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 4-1/2 hours
I thought it needed more flavor. Too bland for me.
Great recipe -- I chose to not precook the chicken breast and simply put all the ingredients in the crockpot (putting frozen chicken in) -- came out beautifully so it was more shredded than whole breasts. Serve with sautéed vegetables totally beautiful!
I didn't make any changes and it was ok, but I probably won't make it again.
Although it was very tasty and my kids liked it, I found it to be lacking in liquid and vegetables. Chicken got overcooked and fell apart and sauce was very thick. Next time I plan to double up on the coconut milk or add some chicken broth, along with carrots, potatoes, green beans and frozen peas (adding peas to last 30 min of cooking time to avoid overcooking) and cut cooking time by at least 30 min or so. A touch more curry powder would help too.
I made it as printed, my husband was NOT impressed. I tried thinking of things to add that might make it less bland. I recommend adding more or hotter curry powder. I also tried adding chestnuts and pineapple as well as more salt and pepper to the leftovers. I was able to eat it but it still seemed a bit bland. I'm not sure what, but it seemed to be missing something.
I added extra coconut milk, coriander, ginger, garlic, red bell pepper, roasted curried cauliflower and broccoli. Fabulous!
This dish seemed a little plain as it is listed so I used as a base and changed it up a bit. I used red curry paste instead with just a dash of curry powder. I added lemongrass and red pepper flakes. I used turkey breast instead of chicken since that is what I had in the freezer. Towards the end of the cooking cycle, I added broccoli, bamboo shoots and fresh basil leaves. since I felt this dish was lacking in vegetables. Turned out excellent. Will definitely make again.
I did not have green onions so I used a whole onion and sliced it very thinly and covered the chicken. I also added crushed and chopped garlic and ginger. To amp the taste, I also added more hot curry paste. My kids loved it so much they asked me to make it again in the same week!
This recipe was quite tasty. I'll make it again, but I think it needs more veggies.Thanks for the recipe!
