Try it Tuesday – slow cooker basil chicken
This week I dug out my slow cooker to give 12tomatoes slow cooker basil chicken a go.
For this I needed
1kg of boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 400g cans of coconut milk
2 jalapeños – finely chopped
1 red onion – finely chopped
6-8 crushed garlic bulbs
2 tablespoons of dried basil
2 tablespoons of yellow curry powder
1 teaspoon of chilli powder
I teaspoon of fresh grated ginger
1 tablespoon of cornstarch
I started by pooring the coconut milk into my slow cooker, to the coconut milk I added the onion, chilli, chilli powder, garlic, dried basil, and curry powder and mixed it all together. I switched the slow cooker to low and then seared all the chicken thighs added them to the slow cooker popped the lid on and forgot about it – well I tried to but it smelt so good !!!
About 20mins or so before we wanted to have dinner I shredded the chicken, added the ginger, gave it a quick stir and popped the lid back on, I then put the rice on to cook, once the rice is ready, dish up and enjoy !!!
this recipe says it feeds 6-8 and there was more than enough for us. What we didn’t eat I have stuck in the freezer for another day.
