Lucky for everyone I’m exhausted and dodging the last bit of crafting madness before tomorrow and I’m covered in wool fiber and smell like a wet sheep along with an assortment of essential oils. Yes! It’s totally as awesome as it sounds.
So here is a recipe I’ve made because it’s cheap and doesn’t require much work. Also, I’ve discovered that orzo is an awesome substitute for rice because it only takes 8 minutes to make, you can’t fuck it up (unlike rice) and it’s the same size and tastes close enough for me. Jow is a princess and won’t eat instant rice and rice is something I consistently fuck up so this has been our compromise. Also rice takes way too long. Way too long. This can be described as “Indian-ish” at best.
1 packet of chicken thighs (remove skin)
1 can of tomato paste
1 tablespoon fresh ginger (or powder, I don’t care)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon curry
1 tablespoon chunky chaat
2 tablespoons butter or ghee
Splash of lemon juice
1 cup non fat greek yogurt
1/2 box orzo cooked according to box directions and drained
Salt and pepper to taste
Dump everything in the crockpot except the yogurt and the orzo. Cook on low for 6 hours. Fish out the bones if you like your guests or housemates. Add the yogurt and stir. Add the orzo and stir. Fin!
