Coconut Chicken Curry (crockpot)

I am currently (still) displaced due to Hurricane Sandy (thank goodness my mom in Chicago is taking us in for the week).  Lately have had a deep desire to cook, I have always loved cooking but the more I cook the better I get and the more I WANT to cook.

This recipe (which is currently in the crockpot and smells amazing) is a bit of a mash-up of this recipe and this recipe from Martha Stewart.  I am also making coconut brown rice to eat with it (and will share this recipe soon).  I hope you enjoy this dish, its healthy and OH SO GOOD!    

Ingredients (step 1):
  • 1lb chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 heaping tbsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tbsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp of pepper
  • 3 scallions (chopped)
  • 2 sprigs of cilantro
Ingredients (step 2):
  • 1/2 cup Light Coconut Water
  • 1/2 cup water Water  
  • 1 cup of green peas (frozen or fresh)

  1. Create the dry rub by mixing the curry powder, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper 
  2. Put raw chicken in a plastic bag and mix in dry rub in.
  3. Once the chicken is coated in the dry rub, dump chicken and spices into into your crockpot.
  4. Add Scallions, cilantro and water to the crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours (until chicken is cooked)
  5. Aprox 30 minutes before serving add in ingredients from step 2 
  6. Serve over rice or with potatoes (and a glass of wine)
