Break out your slow cookers because this clean eating curry chicken recipe is amazing!!
The love affair I have with my slow cooker is currently bordering on obsession.
Just when I think I’ve run out of time to make dinner, I remember that I prepped it the night before and stuck it in the crock pot in the morning before I left. My stress level is instantly reduced to a manageable level.
In fact, I’m considering mixing up some crock pot blends in 1-gallon zip lock bags and tossing them in the freezer. I’ll make a whole bunch at one time. Then, all I have to do is grab a bag, toss it in the crock pot and head out the door. How’s that for an easy meal? (Ya, sometimes I’m just a little bit brilliant…. and arrogant…ehem…)
I got this recipe while surfing the net for crock pot recipe ideas. I came across the DisneyFamily.com web site and they had a recipe for curry chicken that sounded incredible. And to my great surprise, it was clean!
Then I realized that I didn’t have half of what I needed to make it, so I improvised, and wow. This is some seriously good chicken. I think the only thing I would change is to add more broth next time for extra gravy. But seriously, Disney can cook!

- 2 lb. chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)

- 1 tsp. curry powder
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
- 3/4 cup chicken stock (use 2 cups if you want gravy, + 1-2 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour. Whisk well into the broth before adding to the crock pot to avoid clumps.)

Place all ingredients in the crock pot and stir as best you can to get everything mixed and coated in the spices.
