Quick Curry

I'm slowly learning how to use my slow cooker. This recipe was awesome, and I could even do this one during the week because it was so easy to put together, and takes about 7 to 8 hours in the slow cooker. Perfect timing!

What you need:
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger (I cheated and bought a jar)
1/3 cup tomato paste
1 medium onion, chopped (I used red onion, because my friend said they are healthier)
2 lbs boneless/skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup plain whole milk greek yogurt
Salt and Pepper
Scallions, thinly sliced (for garnish)

Whisk together the garlic, curry powder, cumin, ginger, tomato paste and 3/4 cup water in the slow cooker. Stir in the chopped onion. Place the chicken on top of the mixture. Cover the chicken with 1 teaspoon salt and a 1/4 of a teaspoon black pepper.

Cover and cook on the low setting on the slow cooker for 7 to 8 hours. I turned the chicken midway through, but that probably wasn't required. Just before serving, stir in the greek yogurt, and an additional half teaspoon salt.

And that is it. Really. Super easy. Super delicious. Serve over long grain rice and garnish with scallions.

  1. Also, I realize the title may be a little misleading, since the total time on this recipe is like 8 hours. But the active time is less than 10, and that includes chopping the onions and garlic. Its all relative, right? Maybe...? Okay. Fine. But I just posted this on facebook, so I'm not changing the title now!
