Curry Chicken Lettuce Tacos

DSC_0034Curry Chicken Lettuce Tacos

This recipe if quick, easy and YUMMY! I love to use my crockpot any chance I can get. Food just seems to taste better when cooked in the crock pot and my life is busy, so I love recipes that requires little prep time. You can use any kind of large lettuce leafs for the taco shell, I used some delicious chard and lettuce freshly picked from my garden. Add whatever toppings you want and ENJOY!

Ingredients

  • 4 large chicken breast
  • 4 Tbsp red curry paste
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 2 gloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Instructions 

  1. Mix everything (except chicken & cashews) together in a large bowl.
  2. Add the chicken, cashews and mixed ingredients to the crockpot.
