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!

Wellness Tip
Frosting Alternatives for Baking
Here's a tip from our registered dietitian: If you are eating frosted cakes, brownies, or cupcakes, skip the icing and try topping them with pureed fruit just before serving. Pureed pears or peaches are great options. Sprinkle with powdered sugar to complete the pretty picture. Alternatively, try pureed dried fruits with a bit of apple juice added. Figs or prunes work well.

Description: Beans are a great idea for a supper side dish or for a quick lunch. This salad can be kept in the fridge for up to two days.

Balsamic has a rich tart taste, but the sweetness covers the tart flavor, making it very mellow. True balsamic vinegar is aged for between 3 and 12 years.
