Elaborate recipes can be fun to tackle for special occasions, but for everyday meals, my favorite recipes are those that are quick and easy with simple ingredients. Sure, sometimes simple and quick recipes turn out to be bland and boring, but finding a few recipes that are easy and delicious is worth trying a few underwhelming recipes in the process.
After a busy week spent unsuccessfully fighting off a cold, I was relieved to remember that I had picked up the ingredients to try an easy chicken curry dish a few days earlier. The recipe only required three ingredients, and even better, it was a slow cooker recipe that required no extra prep! Yep, no chopping ingredients or precooking! All I had to do was toss the ingredients into the slow cooker, give it a stir, and set it for a few hours.
I was so excited about how simple it was (it literally took about three minutes to prepare), that I posted a picture to my Instagram account. Even if it only turned out to be an okay curry dish, the quick prep had me convinced that I would want to make it again. I mean, three minutes for a homemade recipe that costs under $10? Sign me up!
After setting the slow cooker, I headed out to attend a birthday party for a sweet one year old with Baby G and Gary. I returned home to the warm aroma of savory curry. When the timer went off, I decided to mix some precooked brown rice into the recipe too.
Pass or Fail?
Like I said, I was prepared to add this to my repeat list if the flavor was even just okay. Luckily, it wasn’t just okay, it was good! This is bound to be a regular meal in our house. It may not be the most delicious chicken curry I’ve ever had, but it is without a doubt the easiest. This warm, savory dish also got the seal of approval from Gary and my sister who joined me for dinner.
I was so excited to taste this recipe that I forgot to take a picture of the finished recipe! Head over to the original recipe page at rubiesandradishes.com to view a picture of the dish and pick up the recipe and instructions while you’re there. I’m also looking forward to trying her recipe for Easy Slow Cooker Beef Curry, which is featured in the same post!
