Slow-Cooker Curried Chicken With Ginger and Yogurt January 9, 2015

Why yes, I do love my slow cooker. I also love curry so I decided to give this recipe a try. Very simple to make and the ginger is not overpowering at all. I found it a bit mild, but then again I like spicy food.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 10)
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1/2 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

Directions:

In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, whisk together the tomato paste, garlic, curry powder, ginger, cumin, and ¾ cup water. Add the onion and stir to combine. Place the chicken on top and season with 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Cover and cook until the chicken is tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours (this will shorten total cooking time).

Twenty minutes before serving, cook the rice according to the package directions.

Just before serving, add the yogurt and ½ teaspoon salt to the chicken and stir to combine. Serve with the rice and sprinkle with the scallions.
