Running a business has just about consumed my entire existence and I feel like I haven’t cooked let alone posted an original recipe in forever. So far this summer I’ve barely given myself time to eat let alone cook so when I woke up a few Sundays ago with enough energy to cook I was more than surprised. I recently got some organic free range chicken and had a taste for some curry. In this case the crock pot did the majority of the work but that’s of course the beauty of slow cooker meals. Additionally, my recipe was adapted from this curry chicken recipe I tastespotted over on the Lemon Bowl. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
