Curried Chicken

I found a fabulous recipe in Real Simple Magazine for curried chicken and I ripped it out today because of course, I was gonna make it.  Much to my dismay at 2 something in the afternoon I read through the recipe and it said that it was suppose to "simmer" in the crock pot for 7-8 hours.  What was I thinking?  When I first got this issue, I knew the recipe was intended for slow cookers.  But sometime between  art, reading and math, it slipped my mind.

  So I got my good ol' Better Homes &Garden's cookbook out  that I have had pre-kids, and found a recipe for curried chicken.  I am used to curried chicken having a little orange color to it mine was more on the yellow-green side.  I then compared the 2 recipes and found that  the recipe that I used did not call for tomato paste while the other one did (Thus the yellow-green hue).  Nevertheless everyone ate it.  Rocco had seconds, thirds and fourth but, I didn't care.  And from the look of his clean plate neither did he.
