Yellow Curry Chicken- Crock Pot

Yellow Curry Chicken

Today is Monday which means that I am typically home doing laundry and catching up on chores.  Since I would be busy with other tasks throughout the day I didn't want to worry about dinner and all its time and preparartion.  Dinner screamed crock pot meal tonight!!

I am someone who gets stuck in a rut of routine ... I like to experiment, but I hardly venture out of my typical Mexican and Italian cooking ideas ... all the more why I tried something different for tonight's dinner.  

In addition to my chicken I used a yelllow curry sauce, light coconut milk and pearl onions.  I placed my 2 chicken breasts into the crock pot, poured this 11 oz jar of curry sauce on top, 3/4 of this can of coconut milk, 1 1/2 c of pearl onions and I topped it all with 2 tsp of curry powder and a few dashes of pepper.

I stirred all the ingredients together, turned my crock pot on low and let it cook for 6 hours.  

With about 20 minutes left before dinner, I made some jasmine rice and warmed up a few chicken egg rolls- I love Trader Joe's egg rolls- if you haven't tried them before, DO!

Plate your rice, top with your chicken and onions and drizzle your meal with your curry sauce.  This is awesome and rich in flavor- and the key to every Monday's dinner is that it is EASY!
