Low Fat Chicken Curry Quinoa (Crock Pot)

"Curry." This is a word I used to avoid at all costs, but as I've allowed my taste buds to develop, I have learned to appreciate curry slowly, but surely. There are several different kinds (some of which I am still trying to acquire a taste for), and for now, my own kitchen has only seen the addition of your basic curry powder. That's the key ingredient in this Chicken Curry Quinoa dish. I based my recipe off one I found online (I'd love to give credit to the original creator but umpteen websites have the same recipe listsed). Being that I've only made it once, I was more than pleased with the initial results, however, next time I might take it up a notch and use coconut milk instead of regular milk!

This is a great healthy recipe perfect for during the week when you want something light and simple- it doesn't get much easier than throwing all the ingredients into the crock pot!
