During 1 of my weekly shopping trips I spotted some new Schwartz Slow Cooker packet mixes. I have to say I only brought them as they were 99p each or 2 for £1, who could refuse a bargain like that???
Today was D day for the curry!
Here’s my recipe (although there is a recipe on the back of the packet I always adapt slightly)
1kg Chicken thighs & drumsticks ( I took off the skin & slashed the meat)
8 small onions chopped
250g of mushrooms chopped
8 small new potatoes cut into small/medium cubes
2 cartons of chopped tomatoes (2x400g)
2 packets of Schwartz Slow Cooker Chicken Curry mix.
Place all the dry ingredients in the slow cooker, sprinkle over 1 packet of Schwartz Slow Cooker Chicken Curry mix, pour in 1 packet of the chopped tomatoes & mix well, sprinkle the other packet of Schwartz Slow Cooker Chicken Curry mix & pour over the other carton of tomatoes & give it another mix.
I cooked it on medium for 7 hours stirring every couple of hours.
We had it with rice & naan bread.
There was mixed responses, my stepson who only really eats mild korma’s thought it was nice but hubby who prefers something with a bit more of a kick would’ve liked it hotter. I liked it as you could taste the meat & the other bits & the heat wasn’t overpowering.
It certainly made an easy meal for me to prepare & leave cooking & for that I thank Schwartz for introducing me to these. They do 2 other mixes, 1 for a sausage & bean casserole & the other for beef & tomato casserole.
You can find more about these on the Schwartz website.
I have not been asked by Schwartz to write this review or received any form of payment for this.
