Obsessed with indian food? We are also. Obsessed with coconut? This is for you.
I decided to throw this all in the slow cooker. Those are the best meals ever! Slow, but reliable! Lots of leftovers for sure also! Here is what I did.
1 tbsp of coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil. Or you can omit the oil if you want.
1 whole organic chicken– you could certainly use breasts here also. For the whole chicken I simply cut the good parts off. The breasts, legs, whatever part of the chicken you want to use. Throw away the rest, or save to make a stock with.
1 cup of veggie stock or use chicken if you like
1 small carrot
4-6 cloves of garlic diced
1/2 white onion diced
3 medium red potatoes diced
salt and pepper to taste
1 can of coconut milk (I used light)
hot sauce to taste if you like it spicy
2 tbsp of curry powder or mix that you like (to taste)
Make sure you give all of this a nice stir before you set the top on. Cook on low for 6-7 hours or until chicken is soft.
***Next time I will be using boneless chicken breast. I ended up taking everything out and deboning it halfway through. By using breasts instead of the whole chicken, you can save some fat for sure!
I am serving this over brown rice. It makes such a nice indian dish. Can’t wait for the leftovers tomorrow!
PS- this was the softest chicken I have ever made! So yummy and tender!
