Slow Cooker Chicken Curry

I have always been a fan of different cuisines. Since meeting my husband, I have fell in love with Indian food, although I wish I knew how to cook it really well. This recipe is a slight nod to my husband’s ethnicity and his family. It’s a novice cooks way to introduce a little cultural cuisine to their family.

Slow Cooker Chicken Curry

Ingredients:

8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2-16 oz. jars chunky salsa
2 onions, chopped
4 tbsp curry powder
2 cups fat free sour cream

Directions:

Place chicken in slow cooker.

Combine salsa, onion, and curry powder in a bowl.

Pour over chicken. Cover with lid.

Cook on low 8 to 10 hours (or on high 5 hours).

Transfer chicken to a plate. Cover to keep warm.

Add sour cream to slow cooker, and stir until well incorporated.

Serve over chicken with rice or steamed vegetables. I also served it with whole wheat pita warmed in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

This recipe is pretty healthy. The original recipe calls for chicken thighs. I tried to lighten it up a bit by using chicken breasts. And the use of fat free sour cream helps to make the sauce creamy with out adding too many extra calories.

By the way, I should really start using my slow cooker more often. It was nice having a little extra time to relax after work. 🙂

ENJOY!

    Thanks to very little time and preparation this morning, dinner was mostly ready to serve when I got home from work.

    This slow cooker chicken curry requires only a few ingredients, and is easy to throw together before you leave the house in the morning.

    Last time whenI made this I used all boneless, skinless chicken breast. This time, I used a combination of chicken breast and thighs. ENJOY!!!

  2. Looks delish AND simple! I remember I used to have a curry recipe which made the best curry ever but I lost it and yours looks closest to what I remember of it, thank you!
