here, on my addiction to cooking in a crock pot. That being said, I have also discovered that you really can make ANYTHING in a crock pot. Finding things that don't resemble stew or soup is not that tricky. Just pick a family favorite, throw the ingredients in and set in on " low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low"
Behold- Chicken Pinapple Curry in a crock pot.
When we lived in the Prov, there was a small and run down Thai restaurant around the corner. They served this delicious dish, and I ordered each time we went there. Obviously it was only a matter of time until I figured how to recreate it on my own....then try it in a slow cooker.
Here is how.
6 large chicken breasts, defrosted and cubed
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1 can of pinapple chunks
2 tablespoons- 1/4 cup curry powder- you can vary this a bit depending on your family
chopped green onions or bamboo shoots optional
Throw it all in, give it a good stir, set it on low for 6 hours or so.
Serve it over white rice while you imagine you are in Ko Samui.
Funny enough I actually went to Ko Samui once, and didn't eat curry my entire week stay??? What WAS I thinking.
