  • 4 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 can (13.5 ounces) light coconut milk
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • Cooked brown rice, for serving
  1. In a large slow cooker, place all the ingredients inside (except the peas and rice).
  2. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4. The chicken should shred easily with 2 forks when fully cooked.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in peas. Serve curry over rice.

Jessica--that does look like a great recipe, but it was a different Amy with 2 kids :) What a great comfort-food dish! Unfortunately my kids were not big fans of the dinner I presented them with tonight. :(
