Recipe time (again)

Picture credit: This is not the exact one I used I just wanted to add a picture so you have an idea what I'm talking about.  It does not have to be Thai coconut milk. 

Alright so another lovely reader expressed interest in my coconut milk curry chicken so this is another attempt for me to try to remember what I did.  When it comes to cooking, I'm more of an artist rather than a scientist.  I just do what comes natural to me and deal with the consequences later.  Thankfully this meal came out good.

Note: This is not necessarily a Jamaican dish.  Many Jamaicans (and other people from different cultures) cook curry chicken but I decided to add some things I found tasty from other cultures (particularly the coconut milk).  Coconut milk is added to "rice and peas" (a staple item in Jamaica) but coconut milk is not normally added to our meat dishes.

-4-5 pieces of boneless skinless chicken breast (cubed).
-1 onion (chopped)
-1tbsp garlic (minced)
-1 tsp black pepper
-1tsp thyme
-salt (maybe 1 tsp) ?
-1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
-1/2 tbsp ground ginger
-1/2 tsp cumin
-2 tbsp curry powder
-1/2 tsp chili powder
-Optional: I also used a pepper cocktail mix that my grandparents made from peppers and herbs in their garden because hubby and I like spicy foods.

-1 can coconut milk
-1 cup water

Directions: Place all the ingredients above in a large bowl (except water and coconut milk) and mix together.  Pour this mixture into a crockpot.  Add the coconut milk and water, then stir.  Cover crockpot and cook on low. I believe I let it cook for about 7-8 hours.

And that's it!  Hope you find this useful.

  1. Yummo, this looks great! I dont cook with coconut milk, but I sure love curry chicken! This recipe is so easy and something I can just throw together in the morning. I have been meaning to bring out my crock-pot so thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I picked up a can of coconut milk last night-same can,(just the organic version)for vegan cupcakes!

    I like curry dishes, but I always have to make them myself because I'm picky about getting just the right combo of curry and spice.

    Have a great week.

  3. Ohhhhhhh. This sounds yummy. I am definitely going to try it. Maybe I can make some good use of my crockpot.

  4. Blimey... that sounds very tasty indeed! I am going to have to give that one a go! Thai food is the dogs danglies.

  5. I'm glad you guys liked the recipe ladies. It was yummy and didn't take too much effort on my part. Mommy Glow: You should try using coconut milk some time...it gives meals something extra.
    T.A.Mercado: I would love to know more about your cupcake recipe
    K.Rock: I try to use my crockpot whenever possible.
    Annie: LOL at "dogs danglies" you are too hilarious.

  6. i shouldn't be eating anything carbs but i do love thai food... i'll have to try it one of these days!

  7. From browsing thru yr ingredients, I can imagine the aroma filling the air...yummy! :) yeah, for us malaysian, curry would not be curry without coconut milk. :) but they are very rich though. Would sometimes use evaporated milk as substitute.


I gladly welcome your comments/questions/requests/ suggestions. You may leave them here at any time. Have a blessed day!
