CrockPot Curried Chicken

Another great CrockPot recipe!! I’ve been trying to find recipes that are 5-6 ingredients or less but still flavorful. This recipe hit the nail on the head. It was featured in the cookbook “Six Ingredients of Less: Slow Cooker” by Carlean Johnson which is on Amazon for $13.49. I’m excited to try more of her recipes because of how great this one was.

Curried Chicken

Ingredients:
4 chicken breast halves
3tbsp melted butter
2tbsp honey
2tbsp mustard (yellow or dijon)
1/2tsp curry powder
1/2tsp salt

Directions:
1) Place chicken in slow cooker. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.

2) Cover and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours.

That’s IT! So easy and delicious! We served it over brown rice but Basmati or Jasmine rice would be delicious too. The original recipe called for 1/4cup of butter and 1/4 cup of butter, but we cut it back to make the dish a bit healthier.
