Slow Cooker Indian Curry Chicken

Slow Cooker Indian Curry Chicken

I know I’ve been throwing a lot of things with turmeric your way lately. Either you’re loving it, or you’ve grown tired of seeing all of your dishes covered in orange spice. My apologies, but I think you’ll see it’s worth it once you try this recipe.

I don’t think I would have made it through the winter without my slow cooker. This paleo slow cooker Indian curry chicken is one of my favorite weeknight meals, along with my root veggie pot roast, because it’s easy to start first thing in the morning and then come home to a hot meal at the end of the day.

A lot of curry recipes use heavy cream, but this one uses coconut milk instead for a creamy base and healthy fats which also make the dish more satiating. I love serving this on top of a bed of warm (grain-free!) cauliflower “rice“. If you haven’t experimented with cauliflower “rice” before, there’s no time like the present! It will definitely change the way you cook in your kitchen.

You know what’s really NOT fun…? Being sick. For most of last week I found myself working from home on the couch, exhausted, and completely miserable. Colds are noo fun. The worst part was that no matter what I did I couldn’t shake my sore throat. I initially resorted to my flu buster juice and noticed a…

Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins

Before I start raving about these amazing grain-free chocolate chip muffins, I have to tell you a really important lesson I learned while making them: do not touch the hot pan. I mean it. But, if you do happen to touch the hot pan on accident (ow!), try this little trick: soak your fingers in a cup…

There are some things that one should never say to the person they are dating: 1. If we were on The Bachelor, would you pick me? 2. You don’t know what The Bachelor is? Oh, it’s this horrible show… that I can’t believe I’m admitting to ever having watched… where a bunch of ladies fight…

Alright… all you students, office workers, Seattleites, and coffee lovers better listen up because I think this just might change your world. At least a little bit. Coffee and I have a weird relationship. During my high school and college days I was obsessed with Frappuccinos, caramel macchiatos, and mochas. I’m not sure if you can…

Let’s talk about Valentine’s Day and Valentine’s Day rituals. Besides eating something chocolate-y (these are my absolute fave!), I’m a sucker for a sappy movie and a good cry. I’m not going to lie, past Valentine’s Days have included The Notebook, The Vow, and Celeste and Jessie Forever. I know, I know. I judge me…

I think this is the post where I open up and talk about how hard it is to balance a full-time job with full-time blogging and studying… a lot. I’m currently in the midst of getting a professional certification and I knew going into 2015 that this was going to be a busy year, but…

So, I hear there’s this little thing happening this weekend. Some people might call this… the Super Bowl. Truth be told, I’m not a football fan. And maybe, just maybe, I’ve never seen a football game in my life. (truth) But, the one thing I do know about the Super Bowl (and football in general) is…
