Stick to chicken thighs for this warmly-spiced slow cooker stew since they can withstand the long cooking time.

I'm embarrassed to say that I have not actually tried this yet, but I can tell from the ingredients that I will love it. I'm a senior citizen cooking only for myself and my husband. Although we like leftovers, I think 8 servings is a bit much for just us two. Could half of this be frozen for another time? Another option would be to cut the ingredients in half, but I only have a 6 quart slow cooker (not getting much use lately) and the half recipe seems like too small an amount for that large pot. Or could I do this on the stove top or in the oven using a LeCreuset Dutch oven? I appreciate any advice anyone can offer. I really want to try this. My mouth is watering at the thought of this yummy and healthy entree.

This is a simple and delicious dish. I added cayenne pepper to spice it up some. I didn¿t have chicken thighs so I used cubed chicken tenderloins instead. Very good, will be added to our rotation for sure.

I made this a while ago. It was good but I thought it had way too much curry powder. Next time I will half it.

I added a little diced carrot and potato during the last hour. The about a cup of coconut milk and 1/2 cup diced pineapple. WONDERFUL

Love it. So easy and delicious. I am Indian and whenever I cook curry type dishes the kids always complain about the taste of Garam Masala. There was no Garam Masala and so no complaints from the family. They enjoyed the smell and flavor of the dish. I did not have chickpeas so I substituted with blackeye peas. Yum
