Slow Cooker Chicken Curry Thighs with Chutney

This was one of those meals that we threw together somewhat hesitantly and haphazardly, combining several recipes and our own ideas, and we were pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be fantastic.

We grabbed our slow cooker and threw the following inside: (using Chowhound’s curry spice mixture recipe plus some other goodness)

1 large piece of lemongrass, bruised with a knife and chopped into 1-2 inch pieces
1 heaping tsp ground mustard seeds
1 heaping tsp cumin
1 heaping tsp coriander
1 heaping tsp salt (I use Real Salt)
1 heaping tsp ground ginger
1 heaping tsp turmeric
1 heaping tsp cayenne
1/2 heaping tsp cinnamon

Then add:
~2 lbs boneless chicken thighs, cut into pieces
a can of coconut milk
a couple splashes of Red Boat fish sauce (thank you Nom Nom Paleo for introducing me to this wonderful substance)
1/2 red onion, sliced

Put your slow cooker on low and let it cook for about 5 hours. In the meantime, make the chutney. We took our favorite chutney recipe from the Clothes Make the Girl and switched it up a bit:
~4 cups cilantro- we just used the whole bunch
2 jalapeños (adjust to your personal spice preference- we like it hot!)
4 T parsley
4 T red onion
juice and zest of one lime
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1/2 tsp salt
Throw the above ingredients in your food processor and blend until mixed. It should taste fantastic.

We served the curry over cauliflower rice: One head cauliflower steamed, then shredded in the food processor using the shredding apparatus. Top with the Chutney. Easy and tasty!

    Wow! Great to see you back and really pleased if I had anything to do with it! 🙂 And thanks for this new recipe; I love anything “curry”. I’m also appreciative of your sharing about the interesting fish sauce and will pass the info on to my sister, who will LOVE it! Looking forward to your future posts as you feel inspired to them, no matter when they may come. Thanks again, and again, good to see you back! 🙂

    • You certainly had something to do with it, so THANK YOU! I appreciate your positive comments and motivation! The fish sauce is awesome, and the ingredients are just fermented fish, which is much better than any other fish sauce I have ever seen. Thanks again, Cheryl!

I would love to hear your (nice) comments!
