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.:-) Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Really good. I enjoyed this meal with the additions of carrots instead of celery cranraisins for color and tartness (put in just a few minutes before serving) and the additional spices of cumin cinnamon and chili powder that another reviewer recommended. Also for some texture I didn't add the apples at the beginning but rather about half way through. I also used yogurt instead of milk. I served it with baked potatoes. The one thing that I don't like is that there seems to be more liquid left over than one may expect - but it still tastes really good and has some really unique and different flavor combos. Read More

Four stars after the modifications. I listened to other reviewers and doubled the spices/added cinnamon curry chili powder and garlic. I omitted the apples and replaced them with potatoes. I also doubled the grains. Very tasty end result! Read More

Based on the other reviews I was already planning on greatly increasing the amount of curry. But when I started throwing things in the crock pot I realized that I was almost out of curry! So I used huge amounts of all of the spices listed on the curry container and was glad I did. I will agree that the apples seemed out of place and would use potatoes instead if I fixed this again and would also add raisins for extra flavor. I also added well over the amounts of carrots and celery and was glad for the color. Since the other reviews said that it was watery I used double the amount of grain which worked out well. Read More
