Yield

8 servings (serving size: about 1 cup chicken mixture, 1/2 cup rice, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro)

This classic Indian dish is so simple and bursting with flavor. This spicy crock pot recipe is perfect for any weeknight dinner. Leftovers are definitely the best next-day lunch. If you prefer milder foods, reduce or omit the crushed red pepper. Throw in some coconut, cashews, or mushrooms for an even more unique flavor. Add a quick and easy basket of warm garlicky naan on the side of this beloved chicken recipe
