Easy Crock Pot Chicken Curry

This is so easy and tasty. 
It's a nice go-to recipe when
 you don't have time to fuss. 
I was staying at our North Carolina condo for a few
 days to pack our things after our sale. There was 
nothing in the kitchen pantry to use for dinner, 
but with a quick run to the store for a few basic
ingredients I had dinner in the crock pot in 
5 minutes. So nice not to have to stop everything
 after a busy day to go out to eat. We could relax.
It's definitely hurry curry
This recipe is so simple. Just 4 ingredients 
go in the crock pot and the coconut milk is
added at the end, after it's cooked. So easy. 
 You can use any cut of boneless chicken; thighs, 
breasts, or tenders. The salsa adds all the flavor 
you need. I used medium salsa and there was
 just enough heat. Chicken tenders were on sale
so that's what I used this time. The coconut milk
gives it a smooth creamy finish. You could also
substitute that with 1 C sour cream in a pinch. 
 Give everything a good stir. Cover and cook,
about 5-6 hrs on Low or 3-4 hrs. on High
 Stir in the coconut milk. 
 Heat a few minutes. 
 If you love curry, using the crock pot, 
and easy dinners this will be a favorite. 
 Serve over rice.
Who knew salsa and curry would make
 such a great team.
