Crock-pot Chicken Curry Soup

Standard

Sometimes there’s nothing quite like a comforting bowl of chicken soup.

For decades, chicken soup has been believed to cure common colds and provide essentials via the moist broth that chicken exudes. Often chicken soups contain vegetable oils, legumes and wheat flour for thickening, but truthfully there is no need to add anything but natural ingredients.

In this crock-pot recipe, chicken soup gets a spice kick and a whole lot of ethnic flavor.

INGREDIENTS

1 large organic yam, chopped
1 pound chicken breast, boneless and skinless, sliced into bite sized pieces
2 yellow tomatoes
1/4 cup coconut milk (full fat, canned)
1 tablespoon ghee butter
4 bay leaves
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon medium yellow curry powder
1 jalapeño, sliced thinly
1/2 cup water

RECIPE

Place all the ingredients into a medium crock-pot. Stir and set the crock-pot to the 4 hour, high setting.

Crockpot Chicken Curry Soup
Stir occasionally, about once every hour.
Once the 4 hours have passed, check to see that the yams and soft and if they are, the dish is ready to enjoy.
Serve immediately or turn the crock-pot down to low heat and enjoy later that day, or refrigerate or freeze for enjoying later.

That’s an easy and flavorful soup recipe for a rainy day,

Tomato Chicken Curry

Standard

Curry is a wonderful comfort food, especially during the cold winter months. The problem is that most curries take hours to prepare and then come served atop a large bed of rice, making it not so ideal for us Paleo lifestylers on a busy schedule.

With this recipe, it takes a tenth of the time as traditional curry, but the combination of flavors in the order in which they are cooked, creates a curry sauce that tastes like it’s been in the making for hours. It’ll be our little secret!

INGREDIENTS

1/4 lb. skinless, organic chicken breast, sliced into bite-size pieces
1 tablespoon ghee butter
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 dried bay leaves
1 large organic tomato, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic
1 teaspoon yellow curry powder
1 teaspoon paprika spice
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup coconut milk (canned and full fat)
1/2 cup yams, cooked and sliced

RECIPE

In a medium saute pan, melt the ghee over medium heat.
Add the cumin seeds and bay leaves, and cook until the seeds begin to dance and splatter.
Add the tomato and garlic, mix everything together and cover.
Cook for about 5 minutes before adding the chicken, curry powder and paprika. Mix together well.
Immediately add the water, coconut milk and cooked yams and simmer with the lid on for about 15 minutes, until the chicken is well done.

Tomato Chicken Curry Preparation
Reduce the heat and remove the lid, allowing the dish to cook for another few minutes before serving hot.

Enjoy this taste of India,
