You know you have had a successful morning when by 8:30am you have already gone to crossfit, taken a shower, and put dinner in the crockpot. I am definitely a morning person. Just ask my boyfriend as I yell at him at 11:30pm to shut off the damn light and stop reading, I need to be up at 6am to workout! He says I become cranky Kari at around 11pm. Its true. And then I become hyper happy Kari at 6am. No alarm clock needed. Gotta love him for putting up with that!
Okay, on to the chicken dish! Now you can see how quick and easy this is if I am done preparing it by 8:30. I will post an after picture when we eat it tonight.
- 3 chicken breasts
- 1 small yellow onion thinkly sliced
- 2 bell peppers in small cubes (red and yellow)
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon of ground ginger
- 3 cloves of minced garlic
- 4-5 tablespoons of curry powder (I ran out so only did 3, we will see how that turns out)
- salt and pepper to taste
- red pepper flakes (just a sprinkle)
- 1 cup of chicken broth
Take your handy dandy crockpot and add the coconut milk, tomato paste, curry, ginger, and garlic. Mix around and then add the chopped bell peppers and onions. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and red pepper flakes. Mix around so everything is coated in the mixture. Add the chicken breasts and mix around. Pour in the chicken broth and make sure the chicken is covered with the sauce. Turn on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours. Go to work, come home, and eat!
We are eating ours with coconut cauliflower rice and will top it with some cilantro and avocado slices. Mmmm Mmm, cant wait for tonight!
