crockpot mondays

December’s dinner experiment.  Similar to “pizza Fridays” or “taco Tuesdays”.  These ideas simplify meal-time & add stability to chaotic evening life.  Now, I’m not a fan of being a stickler to these sorts of routines, but there are times when planning = lower stress.

Last night’s meal:  Curried Chicken Stew – tasty!  And, we have leftovers for another meal.  Two birds with one stone!  pow!pow!  Okay, actually, 4 birds.   Whatever.

  • trim the fat & brown 8 chicken thighs in 2 T. olive oil, 8 minutes
  • bottom of crockpot – 6 carrots in chunks, 1 onion in wedges
  • combine 1 can coconut milk & 1/4 cup curry paste, pour 1/2 of mixture over veggies
  • top with chicken, skin sides up, cover, low setting for 7-8 hours
  • pour remaining mixture over top, serve with cilantro, golden raisins &/or crushed red pepper

The recipe is from Better Homes & Gardens December 2011 magazine.  Go to BHG’s website to find tons of crockpot recipes.
