Another unique dish!

Crock Pot Indian Tomato Chicken and Rice
(serves 2 adults well)
  • frozen chicken pieces--enough to feed your family (I used 1 big breast)
  • 1 can tomatoes (I used crushed)
  • 1/2 diced onion
  • 1/2 t ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 t ground coriander (I didn't have, but garam masala has coriander in it)
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  • 1 t garam masala (1/2 t to add now, 1/2 later. You can buy this at the grocery store in the McCormick "gourmet" collection. It's a combination of coriander, cinnamon, cumin, black pepper and cardamom. Used to flavor Indian dishes)
  • 1/2 cup plain non fat yogurt (I used sour cream)
  • cooked rice
  1. Put your chicken pieces into the crock pot and add the can of tomatoes and all of the spices, minus 1/2t of the garam masala.
  2. Don't add the yogurt yet.
  3. Cook on high for 2 12 hours or until chicken is done.
  4. 30 minutes before serving, stir in the yogurt, and taste. Add the other 1/2 t. of garam masala, or to taste.
  5. Serve over rice.
This was another good Indian dish! I am really liking these interesting spices. Changes things up a bit. The kids liked dipping rolls into the sauce and didn't think it was too spicy. They are not rice fans. The sauce was good, but I thought it might need a little sugar? I just have taste buds that really like sweet things. But we enjoyed this.
