Using your slow cooker during a busy week is always a good idea. The prep for this chicken curry is as simple as combining the chicken and spices in your crockpot or slow cooker.
Curry powder contains cucumin, a natural anti-inflammatory compound. Research shows that curcumin may reduce the risk for heart disease, Alzheimer’s and even depression.
We recommend serving your curry brown rice and topping it with raisins, sliced green onions, chutney and chopped peanuts. So good!
