Simple chicken curry

We love eating curry in Winter and I have been making a very tasty chicken curry lately that is easy  to prepare and suitable for the slow cooker.  If you don't have one, simple cook it on the stove.  Served with boiled rice or some crusty bread on the side, you have a delicious warming meal for a cold night.  I added baby bok choy from our garden but you could add anything you have growing or whatever you bought at the market.



IF COOKING ON THE STOVE ...
If you're cooking this on the stove, add the oil and curry to your pan and let it cook on medium for one minute.  Stir to avoid it burning. 
  • splash of cooking oil 
  • curry powder or curry paste to suit your taste - I used two level tablespoons of powder.  Check the instructions on the side to see what the ratio should be.
When the curry has cooked for a minute, add the other ingredients, mix, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it cook slowly for one hour.

  • Chop 300 - 400 grams (10 - 14oz) of boneless chicken thigh into bite size pieces.
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 sticks celery, chopped
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 can coconut cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
METHOD FOR SLOW COOKER  (CROCKPOT) ...
If you're cooking it in a slow cooker, don't use the oil, but add everything to the cooker and turn on to slow for an all day cook.
  • curry powder or curry paste to suit your taste - I used two level tablespoons of powder.  Check the instructions on the side to see what the ratio should be. 
  • Chop 300 - 400 grams (10 - 14oz) of boneless chicken thigh into bite size pieces.
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 sticks celery, chopped
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 can coconut cream
  • salt and pepper to taste

  3. Yum! I made a chicken curry dish the other day for my teenage kids and their friends, using up bits of leftover chicken and random veggies that were on the verge of needing to be tossed out. I made a huge pot of rice to go with it. They ravenously devoured it all and wanted more. Cheap, filling and delicious! Can't ask for anything more than that.

  7. Thanks for the recipe Rhonda. We will be making this tonight but i will be substituting the chicken for potatoes. We only buy free range whole chickens and the price has sky rocketed lately. Its nice to have a few meatless dinners through the week.

  8. Going to make this today as I will be playing yo-yo so is a good day for the slow cooker. Will put up my hand and admit I bought a slow cooker the other day so will have my first attempt at using that to do the rice, I seemed to be having terrible trouble with rice sticking to the bottom of my saucepan (guessing I was getting to easily distracted whilst cooking)so gave into to it

  9. Your curry looks delicious, even though we're in the midst of a heatwave here in France! Love a good curry in winter, not really a fiery one, but rather a very flavorful one...

  10. I have also been making curries(mainly vegetarian with pumpkin and cauliflower)in my slow cooker - I read just yesterday that they are back in fashion and one of the most popular small appliances around at the moment. Should have bought one years ago - now I have two. One for curry or soup and a smaller one for self saucing puddings!

  12. An alternative to the coconut is 1banana and 1 granny smith apple and 1 parsnip, plus 1 teaspoon sugar. All the other ingredients you use, but a delicious curry my Grandmother's made. Norma

  13. Sounds delicious. I often make a similar recipe using sausages, and also green apples and sultanas.
    Enjoy your day.

  19. Oh, this does sound so amazing--it's summer time here in the southern U.S., but I think I shall fix it next week with some Jasmine rice. I'll definitely use the slow cooker so I won't heat up the kitchen!
