Chicken Curry #Paleo Slow Cooker Recipe


This month's freezer to crock pot meals are a little different than last. Same convenience, but with an added twist. This month I am doing the 21 day sugar detox and am also transitioning into Paleo eating. So, all the meals I will be putting up are not only freezer to crockpot friendly, but also Paleo and sugar detox friendly. Before you fret, this does not mean they will be cardboard. I promise, they are much yummier than that. Like the Chicken Curry slow cooker recipe that everyone in the house gobbled up!

Ingredients:

2 lbs. chicken breasts (approximately 4-5)
1/2 tsp. all purpose seasoning
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 onions sliced
1 green pepper sliced
3 gloves of garlic
1 1/2 tbls. ginger
1 1/2 tbls curry powder
1 cup canned crushed tomatoes (organic if possible and no sugar.)
1 cup organic or homemade chicken broth with no sugar.

Instructions:

Step 1: Throw all ingredients into a freezer ziplock bag and make sure to get all the air out before sealing shut.

Step 2: Remove meal from the freezer the night before cooking and thaw in the fridge.

Step 3: Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4. I served this with cauliflower mash and green peas, but you could use a cauliflower rice recipe too and still be Paleo and sugar detox friendly.

  1. I'm not sure i graphic the whole concept of Paleo eating. I only heard about it on blogs.

  3. Tricia, I had not known a lot about it either, but I saw Rhea's success and others and had to give it a try. I am still learning, but will be posting more about it as I go along.

    A lot of curries are made with coconut and the others in my house are not a fan of it, this however isn't and they all loved it.

  4. I'm learning more about paleo diets, too. It sounds like a much healthier lifestyle, for sure!

  8. looks really yummy but I'd take the curry powder out. I know that kind of probably defeats the purpose of the chicken but I am not a curry fan :(

  9. I LOVE chicken curry though I have never been brave enough to try to make it, maybe I will change that this year.

  11. This smelled so good while cooking (did not do it as a freezer meal). I did not have the all purpose seasoning. It did lack something and I am not sure if it was because of that or if it is because its paleo and is missing a normal ingredient...maybe it needs coconut milk and red thai curry paste? I will try again.

  12. It is Paleo and sugar-free on top of that Danielle, so it may come off as seeming like it is missing something. You could try it with the seasoning, and you could definitely try adding other ingredients of your own too. I am sure there are lots of things that could be used to enhance the flavor, but since I was on a sugar detox when these recipes were used, it had to contain no sugar. :)

  13. You can't eat peas or any other legmes on paleo. Just fyi.

  14. The recipe itself is for the chicken only, which is why I still listed it as Paleo. I do not eat strictly paleo, so the peas are an acceptable side dish in my home.
