    Enjoyed it but agree with Lauren it is very soupy. Next time will use less water in chicken stock.  -  05 Mar 2016


    It turned out to be quite soupy but that was fine. I didn't use 12 cloves of garlic, just 4. I also used Thai curry powder.  -  15 Jan 2016


    I have to admit that I followed the recipe loosely - scaling this down to 4 servings - eyeballing the carrots & onions, using 1 can of coconut milk (I hate to have a partial can left over that I know I'll never use up) and 2 cups of chicken broth (made with a bouillon cube & 2 cups water). I needed something that could cook itself in the slow cooker, as I spent the afternoon at my daughter's swim meet. This was very tasty, and everyone liked it. The only thing we will do next time is add a little "kick" with some cayenne, curry paste or red pepper flakes. Super easy and tasty recipe!  -  03 Jan 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
