Prep time

Total time
Garam Masala is a beautiful blend of spices and lends a rich flavor to this warm and hearty Chicken Stew.
Serves: 6-7 servings
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 Tb coconut oil (or other cooking oil)
  • 4 medium red potatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 c chicken broth
  • 1 c tomato sauce
  • 1½ tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 c frozen peas
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • ½ c plain Greek yogurt
  • cooked couscous or rice for serving (optional)
  1. To begin, cut the chicken breasts into 6 pieces each.
  2. Heat the tablespoon of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, cook the chicken until golden on both sides. Do not crowd the chicken, as you do not want to poach it. When you have a golden color, set them aside in a dish and work on the next batch. Do this to all of the chicken.
  3. Clean and cut the red potatoes into in inch pieces. Place them in the bottom of your slow cooker.
  4. Thinly slice the onion and spread the slices all over the top of the potatoes. Place the chicken on top of it all.
  5. In a bowl, combine the tomato sauce, chicken broth, ginger and garlic. Stir these all together and pour into the slow cooker.
  6. Cover and cook on low for 5½ hours.
  7. After the cooking time, add in the yogurt, frozen peas and garam masala. Stir these in and turn your slow cooker up to high. Cook for 30 minutes, covered.
  8. While the stew is finishing up, cook some couscous or rice to serve with the stew if you like. I prefer golden couscous, but you can use what you like. I estimate ⅔ cup per person.
  9. Enjoy!
