If family curry night is a regular occurrence in your household, you’ll want to try out this recipe. The slow cooker makes for melt in your mouth tender chicken and melds the flavors of curry powder, cumin, fresh ginger, tomato paste, and garlic into an aromatic stew. Just add all of the ingredients and step away for a few hours, instead of standing over a hot simmering pot. Be sure to taste the curry once it’s finished and adjust the seasoning. For an extra burst of flavor, try squeezing a lemon over the finished dish. This dinner is a great make ahead option that keeps in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days.
In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, whisk together the tomato paste, garlic, curry powder, ginger, cumin, and ¾ cup water. Add the onion and stir to combine. Place the chicken on top and season with 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
Cover and cook until the chicken is tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours (this will shorten total cooking time).
Twenty minutes before serving, cook the rice according to the package directions.
Just before serving, add the yogurt and ½ teaspoon salt to the chicken and stir to combine. Serve with the rice and sprinkle with the scallions.
