Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry ( Gluten & Dairy-free) 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Breaking out the trusted slow cooker is a ritual that makes me tingly all over. Cozy nights filled with nourishing, hearty dishes are the best way to to survive and thrive through the winter. Since this tends to be a hectic time of year, the convenience of cooking once and eating two or three (or four) times is not just helpful, it's downright necessary. Save yourself from succumbing to the take-out routine and make some curry instead.

I absolutely love this dish because it is delicious and nutritious. There are so many health benefits in here I don't even know where to begin. This curry contains a nice dose of Turmeric, which is a natural anti-inflammatoy and has been linked to improved cognitive function. The coconut oil and coconut milk are great sources of healthy fats. You'll get a heaping helping of protein from the chicken and almonds, plus the cleansing benefits of cilantro. Yum.


Ingredients:
3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
2 red peppers, chopped
2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
1 Anaheim chili, diced (seeds removed)
1 cup of full fat coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1 cup bone broth (Low sodium)
2 tbsp. Turmeric
1 tbsp. cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
4 tbsp. Garam Masala
Fresh Parsley for garnish (chopped)
Toasted, slivered almonds for garnish
Salt + pepper to taste


Directions:
Add all ingredients except chicken to your slow cooker and give it a good stir to combine all the flavors.
Add chicken and spoon the sauce over it. Make sure everything is equally distributed throughout the pot
Cook on high for 4 hours.
Serve it up, top with parsley and almonds (this is great over cauliflower rice).
Enjoy!


Servings: Serves 6 (or 2 people, 3 times)

Nut Nutrition
Nuts are a good source of protein, fiber, and beneficial fats. Almonds, walnuts, peanuts, and peanut butter are rich sources of heart healthy monounsaturated fats which lower LDL (bad) cholesterol when substituted for saturated fat. Walnuts also contain omega 3 fatty acids which help prevent inflammation, reduce blood clot formation, lower triglycerides. Nuts are a calorie dense food so keep portion size is mind. Consider sprinkling nuts on salads, adding them to whole grain side dishes, or using as a topping for a yogurt/fruit parfait.

Sweet Potato Colcannon with Kale
Category: Side Dishes
Description: An Irish slant on a Christmas or Thanksgiving side with a bit of a kick!
Traditionally in North America you might have sweet potatoes with marshmallows, roasted or in a casserole, so why not tip your hat to the Irish flag and create this Irish sweet potato colcannon. Traditionally colcannon is eaten at Halloween but it’s a wonderful dish to have at any time.

Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus.

Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet-tasting but their natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without the blood sugar spikes linked to fatigue and weight gain.

Note: Grocery stores often have two types of labelling for sweet potatoes.
Yam — Soft sweet potato with a copper skin and deep orange flesh.
Sweet potato — Firm sweet potato with golden skin and lighter flesh.
