Coconut Chicken and Zucchini Curry

ever had a craving for curry? maybe i'm crazy but i do. i know a lot of people don't like curry. in fact that's the number one response i get when i ask new clients if there are any flavors they don't like. almost everyone says curry.

perhaps most people just haven't had good curry, because i think it's amazing. green curry, yellow curry, red curry - you say curry, i say yes please! i love thai curry, indian curry, curried fruit, chicken salad with curry thrown in, curried old socks. ok, not the last one, just checking to see if you were still with me.

(wow, how many times did i just type the word curry?)

if you haven't given curry a fair shot, i recommend this recipe. it's a slow cooker meal so you don't have to put too much effort into it. if it turns out you don't like it? wrap it up and send it to me. have i mentioned i like curry??
