Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry ( Gluten & Dairy-free) 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Breaking out the trusted slow cooker is a ritual that makes me tingly all over. Cozy nights filled with nourishing, hearty dishes are the best way to to survive and thrive through the winter. Since this tends to be a hectic time of year, the convenience of cooking once and eating two or three (or four) times is not just helpful, it's downright necessary. Save yourself from succumbing to the take-out routine and make some curry instead.

I absolutely love this dish because it is delicious and nutritious. There are so many health benefits in here I don't even know where to begin. This curry contains a nice dose of Turmeric, which is a natural anti-inflammatoy and has been linked to improved cognitive function. The coconut oil and coconut milk are great sources of healthy fats. You'll get a heaping helping of protein from the chicken and almonds, plus the cleansing benefits of cilantro. Yum.


Ingredients:
3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
2 red peppers, chopped
2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
1 Anaheim chili, diced (seeds removed)
1 cup of full fat coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1 cup bone broth (Low sodium)
2 tbsp. Turmeric
1 tbsp. cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
4 tbsp. Garam Masala
Fresh Parsley for garnish (chopped)
Toasted, slivered almonds for garnish
Salt + pepper to taste


Directions:
Add all ingredients except chicken to your slow cooker and give it a good stir to combine all the flavors.
Add chicken and spoon the sauce over it. Make sure everything is equally distributed throughout the pot
Cook on high for 4 hours.
Serve it up, top with parsley and almonds (this is great over cauliflower rice).
Enjoy!


Servings: Serves 6 (or 2 people, 3 times)

Wellness Tip
VEGETARIAN DIETS AND IRON
Are you a vegetarian or mostly a vegetarian? Our registered dietitian recommends consuming plenty of iron-rich plant foods such as lentils, kidney beans, black beans, dark green leafy vegetables, dried fruit and whole grains. Iron-enriched products such as cereals and breads are also good sources. To enhance iron absorption, consume vitamin C-rich foods at the same time you eat iron-containing foods. These include strawberries, green peppers, tomatoes, broccoli and citrus fruits. By following these simple guidelines, most non-meat eaters will get enough iron.
