Ingredients

  • 2.5 lbs. boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
  •  1 medium onion, chopped
  •  1 15-oz can coconut milk
  • 1 15-oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1 T. tomato paste
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 T. fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 1/2 t. garam masala
  • 1 1/2 t. curry powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  •  1 T. cornstarch
  • cilantro, to garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Place chopped chicken and chopped onion into slow cooker.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients except for cilantro and add to slow cooker.
  3. Cook on low for about 8 hours.
  4. Serve in bowls. Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.

Serve with brown rice or riced cauliflower and a colorful vegetable for an easy weeknight, real-food meal. You may even have a few bonus leftover servings for lunches. Or think about doubling the recipe if your slow cooker is large enough (a 6-quart slow cooker). It freezes well for another week if you don’t like having the same thing two times in a row.
