Crock Pot Thai Chicken Curry

Martha Stewart’s Cashew Curry Chicken Kebabs made my husband ask me for more curry dishes, they were that good. Since I made the kebabs with green curry, it was time to try a dish using the red curry paste, and it did NOT disappoint… This dish will warm your belly and satisfy your cravings for comfort food for sure. I served it with roasted cauliflower rice and I’ll put that recipe in the “What I’ve learned” section for y’all (it’s super simple). Enjoy!

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 1 14 oz can of full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce or fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons erythritol
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, whatever you prefer. I used chicken breasts.

Instructions

  • Mix all ingredients except for the chicken, in your crock pot. Whisk until fully combined.
  • Place the chicken on top of the sauce and spoon the sauce over the chicken so it’s fully covered.
  • Cook on LOW for 3 hours.
  • After 3 hours, remove the chicken from the pot and cut into bite size chunks.
  • Put the chicken back into the pot and stir to coat.
  • Serve in a bowl (the sauce is amazing so serving it in a bowl will give you the chance to add some more sauce to your serving) over cauliflower rice, and garnish with fresh parsley and/or green onions.

What I’ve learned…(or better….. here are some tips for ya!)

  • If you want more heat, add 1 more tablespoon of red curry paste.
  • If you are not a heat lover, but would like more curry taste, just add another tablespoon of green curry paste.
  • Roasted cauliflower rice makes a great side dish for this recipe! To make the cauliflower rice, start with 4 cups frozen cauliflower rice. Preheat the oven to 400 F and spray a cookie sheet with oil. Put the cauliflower rice on a heap in the middle of the sheet, add 2 minced garlic cloves and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Salt to taste. Spread the “rice” out in a single layer and roast for 25 minutes, flipping the rice over after 10 minutes has past.
