Having grown up in the Virgin Islands, I've eaten my fair share of authentic curried chicken. This recipe hits the mark with big, bold flavors. It's delicious served over rice. —Sharon Gibson, Hendersonville, North Carolina

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Madras curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 4 ounces each)
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1-1/2 cups Goya Mojo Criollo marinade, well-shaken
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Hot cooked rice, green onions and fresh cilantro leaves, optional

Directions

Combine curry powder, garlic powder and pepper; sprinkle over chicken, pressing to help it adhere. Place chicken in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Sprinkle with onion. Carefully pour Goya Mojo Marinade along the sides of slow cooker, avoiding chicken to keep coating intact. Cook, covered, on low until a thermometer reads 170°, 4-6 hours. Remove chicken; keep warm.
Pour cooking juices from slow cooker into a measuring cup; skim fat. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually whisk in cooking juices. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Reduce heat; add chicken and simmer about 5 minutes. If desired, serve with rice, green onions and cilantro leaves. Yield: 8 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Mojo Criollo (pronounced mo-ho cree-OH-yo) is a citrus-based marinade commonly used in Latin American and Caribbean cooking. You'll find it in large bottles in most supermarkets.
  • Chop up leftovers and fill warmed tortillas for Caribbean-style burritos. Amazing!

    "We loved this dish! I will be making it again very soon. My husband and my 13 yr old daughter loved it. We have been buying Goya mojo for years and we use it in the crockpot with chicken breast then shred it back into the juice and serve it over rice. So I knew this would be a great variation. The curry is a perfect accent."
