Crockpot Curry Chicken

If you are a curry girl, this slow cooker coconut curry chicken needs to be added to your meal plan! SO SO SOOOOO good. It’s made in the slow cooker because that’s what us Minnesota girls do with green curry paste and full-fat coconut milk. For both of these products, I use the brand Thai Kitchen because it’s the easiest to find and what I love most!. If you follow one thing in this recipe, please use full-fat coconut milk. The flavor is so much better than that lite stuff and I highly recommend it.

In addition to the crockpot coconut curry chicken, we also cooked up some lightly sautéed onions and peppers and a side of brown rice. Don’t forget to give a lime wedge a big squeeze at the end because it really makes the flavor of this recipe.

Ingredients

Crockpot Curry Chicken

Peppers and Onion

  • 1 large green pepper, sliced
  • 1 large red pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Brown Rice

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 cups water

Instructions

Crockpot Curry Chicken

  1. Place chicken breast and minced garlic in a slow cooker. Turn to high and let cook on high for 2-4 hours or on low for 6-8 (depending on how strong your slow cooker is). We suggest cooking your chicken on low for maximum tenderness.
  2. Once cooked all the way through and tender, remove and shred chicken with 2 forks. Then, place back into slow cooker.
  3. Add the rest of the curry chicken ingredients and mix until combined. Let cook for 20-30 more minutes to thicken.

Peppers and Onions

  1. Slice 1 large green pepper and 1 large red pepper into thin slices. Then slice 1/2 a red onion.
  2. Heat 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium/high heat. Then, add in sliced veggies and sauté for about 5 minutes, just enough to flash fry them so they aren’t soggy. Season with salt and pepper.

Brown Rice

  1. Place 1 cup of brown rice and 2 cups of water in a medium pot. Turn to high and bring to a boil. Then, turn heat to low and cover. Let simmer for 20-25 minutes or until all water has evaporated.

Notes

  • In order to make this recipe keto and paleo, sub the brown rice for a grain free option like cauliflower rice.

Oh haiiiiiii! Happy Monday. It’s actually Thursday right now as I am writing this, but I’m trying to get ahead of the game here before a busy weekend. The last errrrr 6 weeks have been anything BUT that “get ahead” mentality. I’m usually pretty organized with work and life, but with the launch of the Healthy Glow Collective and the holidays and travel…holy man did I feel behind there for a little bit. I finally feel like I’ve got my bearings back.

I’ve even had a chance to watch Netflix, AKA finish season 6 of Shameless. Le sigh. There’s nothing worse than watching a season finale of a show and NOT REALIZING IT WAS THE SEASON FINALE. To make it worse, season 6 is the latest season of Shameless on Netflix, too! I just love that show. They bring real issues of diversity, gender roles, poverty, etc. into perspective. Another thing I love about Shameless is how the characters have morphed over each season. SO GOOD. Please tell me you’ve seen it!

It’s about 8:30 PM right now and all I want to do is go to bed since I was up at 4:30 AM this morning because I couldn’t sleep. However, I try and have a STRICT 9:00 PM rule, where I have to stay up until then :D So? I just started The Parent Trap because it was just added to Netflix. We’re talking the 1961 version. Aw yeah.
