Crockpot Curry Chicken

This week the Sunday Supper team is sharing recipes inspired by the Middle East. I’ll be honest, I don’t do a lot of middle eastern cooking, but the first thing that popped into my mind was “curry.” I have a couple curry recipes and this is another family favorite.

To begin, dice an onion, mince 6 cloves of garlic, and grate 2 tablespoons of fresh ginger.


In a skillet, sauté the onion, garlic and ginger in 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil over medium heat until they are just tender.


Stir in a tablespoon of tomato sauce.


4 teaspoons of curry powder.


2 1/2 cups chicken broth


and a teaspoon each of salt & pepper. Stir it all together and pour it into your crockpot.


Stir in 3 tablespoons of “minute” tapioca.


Cut up 3 or 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into 2 inch pieces.


Stir this all together, cover and cook on low for 4 1/2 hours.


Stir in a half cup of dried cranberries and a teaspoon of cilantro…


and 1/2 cup of coarsely chopped cashews. Cook for an additional 30 minutes. (Now is the time to cook your couscous or rice to serve with this.)


When it is done cooking, stir in a half cup of plain yogurt.


Ladle your chicken and sauce over a bed of couscous and rice. Enjoy!

    Very clever to add cranberries, Conni. I imagine the sweetness is a nice counterbalance to the curry. Plus they add that perfect flash of color. Thank you for sharing yet another keeper recipe!
