Chicken Mulligatawny

Another healthy, gluten free, option. I’ve combined several different recipes to come up with one we like. This one is a crock pot/slow cooker meal. Serves 6-8.


  • 4 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 c unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 c mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 T curry powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • Fresh or frozen vegetables of choice (green beans, baby or sliced carrots, peas, sliced zucchini)
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, sliced


  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place in crockpot.
  2. Add green beans, carrots, peas.
  3. In a 4 cup measuring cup, combine coconut with onion, celery, garlic, mushrooms, and seasoning. Pour over everything.
  4. Cook on low for 5 hours.
  5. Combine cornstarch with 1/4 c warm water. Add to crockpot.
  6. Add zucchini and apple slices. (I add them near the end so they don’t break down into mush)
  7. Cook on low for 1 hour.
  8. Serve with cauliflower rice, if desired.

About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.
