Coconut Curry Chicken

My husband and I love this yummy dish! It's a breeze to prepare in the slow cooker, and it tastes just like a meal you'd have at your favorite Indian or Thai restaurant. —Andi Kauffman, Beavercreek, Oregon

    It was just ok, I probably won't make it again.4 months later-for some reason I decided to give this another shot-still not that great. It looks really good in the picture but don't let it fool ya.

    Delicious - but I doubled the sauce part as there was not enough liquid.I halved the amount of curry powder as 4 tsp was too hot for me.

    Very full of flavor. I will make this again but will more then likely double for leftovers.

    I doubled the sauce part of the recipe using the entire can on coconut milk, used carrots instead of potatoes and I added baby corn. I cubed the chicken before putting it in the crock pot. I also added cilantro to the toppings. Everyone enjoyed the meal and put it on the serve again list.

    I followed this recipe exactly and crock potted it for 4.5 hours. It didn't look ANYTHING like the picture and had an odd taste. There was something off putting about serving potatoes over rice. Nothing to salvage here, so it went down the sink. First failed ToH recipe.

    This was great. I did add the whole can of coconut milk for extra sauce and 1 extra tsp. of curry powder. I will be making this again.

    Excellent! Fine balance between the spices and the coconut milk. Loved the flavor. It was a smashing success at home.

    Love this recipe! Only thing I changed was that I cubed the chicken after browning it and putting it in the crockpot for taste throughout. Also, I found that I had to double the coconut sauce ingredients to have enough. I will definitely make this again... the flavor is a real wow and would certainly impress dinner guests. I garnished with raisins, green onions and crushed peanuts and the plate looked like it came from a restaurant kitchen!

    Surprisingly this was sort of bland. I could taste the curry, but we all had to add salt to our plate. Would have been really bland without the nuts and almonds. This needed something. Maybe more salt upfront or maybe some cayenne.

    I made this for dinner tonight. It was DELISH!!! I only used two chicken breasts and the full sauce recipe. I also used Sweet Potatoes and it was very good. I didn't use the crock pot because mine is too large. I cooked it in the oven at 250 for 2 1/2 hrs and it was perfect. We did sprinkle it with coconut and raisins and it was the perfect touch. Will definitely make this again! Thank you for a great recipe.
