  • 1 inch cube of ginger (about 30 grams), roughly chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 – 1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into pieces
  • 1 can light coconut milk – make sure your can is BPA free
  • 4 cups of veggies of your choice.  I used snap peas, zucchini, red and yellow peppers, and broccoli
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground tumeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


1.) Heat your coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat.  Add your chopped onions, ginger, and chicken.  Cook lightly for about 5-10 minutes until the outside of the chicken pieces are just cooked.  Transfer to the bottom of the slow cooker.

2.) In a small bowl, mix together the can of coconut milk and your spices.

3.) Add the veggies to the slow cooker over the chicken then pour your coconut milk mixture over everything.  Stir to combine.

4.) Cook on low for 4 – 5 hours until the chicken is cooked through.

5.) Spoon onto plates and serve!
