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.
