My hubby doesn't like apples in non-desert food so I skipped that but I think raisins would be better than apples. Found the curry flavor very bland so tripled it and added a two dashes each of cinnamon, cumin and chili powder. Also substituted low fat coconut milk for the regular low fat milk, tasted more like curry and added a few carrots to the mix.


This recipe has a lot of potential when the changes that others mentioned are made, and my rating is for the tweaked version. I doubled the curry powder, and added 2 cloves of garlic, mushrooms, carrots, cranberries, salt, pepper, and the spices recommended by others, apart from the extra chilli. I added a splash of soy sauce at the end, too. It turned out beautifully. I think it would probably go better again (although would require a little more work) by frying up the spices, onions, garlic and chicken before popping them in the slow cooker. I noted someone was concerned about too much liquid in the final result. The apples do release a lot as they cook, so I decided to eliminate the milk, which can separate in slow cooking, by adding a 50g sachet of powdered coconut milk to the stock, which I made up with a full teaspoon of powder in a cup of boiling water. This was great. :-)


Followed recipe exactly. Really lacks flavor. Next time would motify with more seasonings like salt, pepper, garlic cloves, and herbs. Mushrooms would also be a good addition.
