A Delicious Quick Meal Recipe: Dairy and Egg Free!

Sweet Chicken Curry

It all started when I was pregnant…I think they call it “nesting”. I actually developed a “like” for cooking. Before I was pregnant, John and I would eat out twice a day and then have something quick or microwavable for the “in between” meal.

When I was pregnant, I started to cook more. And, I’m enjoying it. I’m actually pretty good at it.

One of my favorite kitchen appliances is my crock pot. I received it as a gift at our wedding in 2002 and I think the first time I used it was 2010 :) I absolutely love it and have made some amazing meals in it: sausage and peppers, pot roast, beef stew, beef stroganoff, chili and more. More so, I love the fact that I can throw in some ingredients and let them cook throughout the day. Eight hours later, I’ve got a delicious, healthy and home-cooked meal with lots of left-overs. Now that I’m a mom, anything that allows me to do something faster is favorable. Plus, I’ve eliminated dairy from my diet since it doesn’t agree with Trinity and there are many delicious crock-pot recipes without dairy.

John bought me the Slow Cooker Bible for Christmas and I’ve been experimenting with the recipes. I just made the Sweet Chicken Curry and it was delicious. It made for a nice meal and something a little different. The flavor was incredible…a little sweet, a little spicy and absolutely delicious!

Here’s the recipe:

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 large green or red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 large onion, sliced
1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup prepared mango chutney
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
Hot cooked rice

1. Place chicken, bell pepper and onion in slow cooker. Top with tomato.

2. Mix chutney, water, cornstarch and curry powder in a small bowl. Pour over chicken.

3. Cover; cook on LOW 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours or until chicken is tender. Serve over rice.

Makes 4 Servings. Recipe from the Slow Cooker Bible.
