    I did make some changes, I added one chopped onion, and 3 cloves of minced garlic, and one can of coconut milk and also one tbsp of red curry paste. I didn't find this recipe that great, even though I added the extra ingredients. It was ok, but if you like extra spice, then it was a bit bland. I guess its not a thai curry, so that's why the recipe didn't call for coconut milk or curry paste. I won't make it again.  -  26 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Meh. The first time I try a recipe I follow it verbatim. Maybe my new slow cooker cooks faster that it should, but 4 hours into the cooking process most of the liquid had cooked away. At that point there was barely 2 servings, I had to add some chicken broth AND some diced potatoes just so there would be a meal for two people. Way too much sodium! I can find much better use for chicken than this recipe.  -  21 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
