A couple of new recipes

I know I haven't been posting on a regular basis lately so here are a couple of great recipes we have tried recently.

The first is an Easy Chicken Teriyaki Recipe. You should have most of the ingredients on hand and it turned out so tender and yummy. The sauce turns out like a sweet glaze on the chicken.
Here is the link to the blog I found the recipe on.

The second is a Healthy Chicken Curry recipe made in the crockpot. This one has lots of "different" ingredients that my children don't eat all the time and they loved it and didn't even realize what they were eating.

Healthy Chicken Curry

This flavorful and low-calorie curry includes vitamin C-rich cauliflower. Serve it over whole-grain brown rice or quinoa for added fiber.

Prep: 20 minutes
Total: 7 hours 20 minutes
Serves 6


1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts and thighs, cut into 3-inch pieces

1 small onion, thinly sliced

3 carrots, sliced into thick rounds

4 teaspoons curry powder

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon each kosher salt and ground black pepper

3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric

1/2 head cauliflower, cut into large florets

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/3 cup raisins

1 1/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt

1/4 cup chopped cilantro


1. Add the chicken, onion, and carrots to a 6-quart slow cooker. Combine the curry powder, cornstarch, salt, pepper, and turmeric in a small bowl and toss with chicken mixture. Add cauliflower, garlic, raisins, and 1/3 cup water; cover and cook 4 hours on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW.
2. Ladle about 1 cup of the cooking liquid into a bowl and combine with the yogurt and cilantro; add mixture back to the slow cooker, stirring gently.
