Cooking Together…Slow-Cooker Curried Chicken with Ginger and Yogurt

I found this week’s recipe in the pages of my Real Simple magazine…and since I’m always a fan of anything I can make in the slow-cooker, I thought I’d give it a whirl! Here’s the recipe for Slow-Cooker Curried Chicken with Ginger and Yogurt in case you missed it last week:

Thoughts on This Week’s Recipe:

Ease of preparation: Super easy! It just took a couple minutes for me to throw the ingredients in the crock pot in the morning…of course I took the easy way out and didn’t use fresh grated ginger, or chop my own garlic or onions. That’s right, I bought the pre-chopped onions, and minced ginger and garlic in jars. But I think it would still be very quick prep even if you were chopping your own onion, etc.

Overall opinion:
I liked this dish, although I do have to admit it was missing a little something. It smelled amazing and so aromatic as it was cooking all day, but the flavor wasn’t as bold as I thought it might be. All that to say, it was very good though and so, so easy. I’m also a curry person, and I feel like some people like curry and some just don’t. So, if you’re one of those who don’t like curry, I would skip this dish.

Husband’s thoughts:
He liked it, and would have it again. His exact words were, “I liked it more than I thought I would.” So, I’m not sure exactly what that means, but I think it’s good.

Would you make it again?
Yes, I always love an easy, yummy crock pot recipe.

Did you omit or add anything? We had it with brown rice instead of white, and I also used an entire 6 oz. can of tomato paste instead of just 1/3 cup.

Would you change anything next time?
I would like to add something to it…maybe some type of vegetable? Perhaps green peas? Or cauliflower? And maybe top it with some toasted cashews or peanuts? Any other suggestions?

This Week’s Recipe:

This week I’ll be trying Chicken Piccata from The Barefoot Contessa, along with her Herb-Roasted Onions on the side. Here are both recipes if you want to print them out and try them with me.
