Curried Chicken In A Crock Pot

Curried ChickenI made this dish for a group of friends and family who had come to Colorado to celebrate my son Trevor and his beautiful bride Anna’s wedding.  They asked me to make a curry dish that would be easy to to serve a group of people.  They had a crock pot which made it simple.  With a crock pot you can put the dish together early in the day and it will be ready for dinner.  I couldn’t believe how easy it was.  I am going to have to get a crock pot for myself at home.   

Here is a photo of us at the wedding.
