Slow Cooked Curry Chicken

Just a quick drive-by to share one of the easiest recipes I have in my recipe cache.  This is truly one of my “go to” recipes, and it is very tasty for being so simple.

My husband's dinner is smiling at you.

6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
2/3 c Miracle Whip Light
1 (10 3/4 oz) can Healthy Request Cream of Chicken Soup or store brand equivalent
1 tsp – 1 tbsp curry powder

  • Rinse chicken, pat it dry, and place in slow cooker. Keep it in a single layer as best you can.
  • Mix the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl then pour evenly over the chicken.
  • Cook on high for about 4 hours. Stir gently before serving.

IT !!!

Obviously, this is not a true curry dish like you might find in an Indian restaurant.  But, if you like the taste of curry, do not deny yourself this so-easy-it’s-silly recipe.  Many would be happy with just a teaspoon of curry powder.  I go for 1.5 to 2 tablespoons, myself.

Any mayo will work, but I truly think Miracle Whip Light gives it a certain tang that I enjoy.  I’m otherwise not a big Miracle Whip fan, so that says something here.  Other cream soups will work, such as cream of mushroom.  Today, I actually used Safeway’s equivalent to Campbell’s Healthy Request Cream of Chicken.

In the past, I’ve added things like fresh sliced mushrooms or chopped onions.  Occasionally, I add other spices to complement the curry.  You can use chicken breasts if you want a bit less fat.  I prefer thighs, as they’re nice and moist and used most often in my favorite real curry dishes.

My small thigh and a couple slices of diced and peppered tomato.  On a side dish, as always.

I served this to my husband with some Yoplait Light Thick and Creamy Key Lime yogurt.  Later, we may split a mango for dessert.

The best part, of course, is that you spend 5 minutes whipping this into your slow cooker and four hours later, you’ve got dinner.  It can go eight hours on low, but I think the sauce comes out better when cooked on high.  Either way… the house smells great, and it’s almost like someone else did the cooking for you.  Almost!
