Slow-Cooker Country Captain Chicken
From Cook's Country
Browning chicken thighs with the skin on gave our Slow-Cooker Country Captain Chicken recipe a flavorful foundation, and removing the skin before braising kept the broth from turning greasy. Because the dish simmers so long, it was important to generously season the country captain chicken. To do this, we included a variety of bold flavorings and spices, such as curry powder and mango chutney.
Serves 6 to 8
Basic curry powder turns bitter after six hours in a slow cooker, so stick with Madras curry powder. By tradition, this dish can be garnished with any or all of the following: sliced toasted almonds, shredded coconut, diced Granny Smith apples, and diced banana. Steamed long-grain rice is a must. Unlike beef, which can be browned and chilled the night before it goes into the slow cooker, once the chicken is browned it should be cooked right away.
