Indian Chicken

This is a slow cooker recipe- and I would say this is not a favorite kid meal. Curry usually doesn't go over well with kids so it's more an adult/big kid meal. But it's super yummy and healthy and so it's definitely going in our SAS 'recipe box'

2lb. Skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1' pieces.
1 Medium onion chopped
3 Cloves garlic, minced
5 tsp. Curry powder
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper and/or cayenne pepper
1 15-oz can chickpeas or black eyed peas, or you can even go black bean if you want, drained
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 Cup Chicken broth
1 Bay leaf
2 T Lime juice
1-2 cups baby spinach, optional
Hot cooked rice

Add chicken, onion, and garlic to the slow cooker. Add curry powder, ginger, salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Add beans, tomatoes, broth, bay leaf. Cover and cook 6-8 hours on low.
Stir in lime juice and spinach, let stand a couple minutes so the spinach wilts,then serve with rice.
