Slow Chicken Curry

Posted on

Dear Jess,

Brrrrrr. It is so cold.

That being said… I am enjoying it more this year than any year. I think the warm winter last year gave me a break, and this year I realized that I missed it a little bit. Well… mainly I think I miss the effect that good food has on a frigid cold day.

This is one of those meals that sets a cold day right. I have made it twice, and I will be making it again. It’s from the Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook. It’s easy, basic, makes your house smell like heaven, and it tastes yummy. I have put it in my slow cooker on cleaning days, so as I’m working around the house, the smell wafts through the house and I feel like dinner is making itself!

Slow Chicken Curry
From Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook, page 88

2 tbsp curry powder
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or breasts)
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 yellow onion, sliced
3 carrots, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
1 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
1 cup Homemade Chicken Broth (I used my homemade Veggie Broth)

1. In a small bowl, mix all of the dry spices together.

2. Place the chicken thighs in slow cooker and pour the spice mixture over the chicken thighs and toss together until all the thighs are coated with the spices.

3. Sprinkle on the minced garlic and add the onions, carrots, and celery.

4. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut milk and the chicken broth.

5. Pour the coconut milk and chicken broth mixture over the top of the chicken and vegetables and cook on high in the slow cooker for 4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours.

The first time I did this I did it slowly on low for 6-7 hours. The second time I tried it on high for 4 hours. I didn’t find any difference. Delicious either way!

I served it on brown and wild rice rice for Jason. For me I put it over some steamed broccoli with a salad. Mmmmm. Snuggle up with the icy wind howling at your windows, and enjoy the warmth and comfort from this meal. Success!



Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
