Reviews for Slow-Cooked Curry Chicken

I added extra coconut milk, coriander, ginger, garlic, red bell pepper, roasted curried cauliflower and broccoli. Fabulous!
This dish seemed a little plain as it is listed so I used as a base and changed it up a bit. I used red curry paste instead with just a dash of curry powder. I added lemongrass and red pepper flakes. I used turkey breast instead of chicken since that is what I had in the freezer. Towards the end of the cooking cycle, I added broccoli, bamboo shoots and fresh basil leaves. since I felt this dish was lacking in vegetables. Turned out excellent. Will definitely make again.
I did not have green onions so I used a whole onion and sliced it very thinly and covered the chicken. I also added crushed and chopped garlic and ginger. To amp the taste, I also added more hot curry paste. My kids loved it so much they asked me to make it again in the same week!
This recipe was quite tasty. I'll make it again, but I think it needs more veggies.
Thanks for the recipe!
