This recipe is super easy and a hit with the whole family.
I rarely follow a recipe exactly, this is actually a twist on a recipe I originally found on the Kraft Foods website. I was looking for something easy, but I didn’t have salsa and I LOVE my Patak’s curry paste. I made a few substitutions and came up with the following:
Super Easy Chicken Curry
Prep: 5 minutes Cooking Time: varies
8-10 chicken thighs
2 cans of diced spicy tomatoes
1 chopped onion
2-3 Tablespoons of Patak’s Hot Curry Paste
1-1.5 cups of sour cream
1. Add chicken and chopped onion to the crock pot.
2. Mix curry paste with the tomatoes and pour over chicken and onions.
Cook in crock pot on low for 6-8 hours (or high for 4 hours).
Alternatively, you can cook this in the oven covered for 1 hour @ 375f.
Prior to serving stir sour cream into the curry dish. Serve with rice.
I know Patak’s products are available in most Canadian grocery stores. I don’t have a clue if the same is true in the USA. However, I do know you can buy it online in the USA for less than $5.00 per jar (click here). It is well worth your money.
Use whatever sort of tomatoes you have available. I like the chili version, but have used plain whole canned tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, even Italian diced. They all work.
If you don’t like chicken thighs, use breasts, legs … I’ve used them all, they all work.
If you don’t have Patak’s you could use curry powder, like the Kraft recipe suggests.
I’ve added additional vegetables: grated zuchinni, chopped cauliflower and green pepper. That works too!
I guess the point is, don’t let not having a particular brand or cut of meat etc., keep you from trying a new recipe.
