We have all experienced major fails in the kitchen from time to time. Whether it be spilling rice all over the floor, having a bag of milk explode or experiencing a recipe flop… We have all been there.
I have always found that some slow cooker recipes can hit and miss. Curry in particular. I can’t even tell you how many times I have tried to prepare a curry in the slow cooker, and have had it not turn out. Generally as result of my own wrong doing. I’m notorious for failing to wait until the last 30 minutes of cook time to add in dairy products that a recipe calls for to the slow cooker. The end result always turning out to be an epic curdled waste of food.
I recently set out on a mission to correct this. I had been craving a dish with authentic flavours, and desperately wanted to indulge in a curry. I browsed through the Kraft Canada What’s Cooking website checking out all of their comfort food recipes, and came across a recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Curry.
Being the way that I am, I couldn’t just follow the recipe step by step. I had to add in my own personal twist!
The end result a delicious, mouthwatering meal! My husband loved it so much that he took the leftovers for lunch every single day last week.
