This comfort dish gets fabulous flavor when I add chicken, sweet red peppers, coconut milk and the all-important seasoning, curry powder. —Roxana Lambeth, Moreno Valley, California

  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 medium red potatoes, chopped (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (13.66 ounces) coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 3 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • Hot cooked couscous


  1. Place first 6 ingredients in a 3- or 4-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut milk, broth and dry seasonings; stir into chicken mixture.
  2. Cook, covered, on low until chicken and vegetables are tender, 4-5 hours. Stir in cilantro. Serve with couscous.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Chicken thighs tend to do better in the slow cooker than chicken breasts. Thighs aren’t as lean as breasts, so the longer cook time won’t dry them out.
  • There’s plenty of flavorful sauce, which makes this dish great over couscous or rice.
