Chicken Curry in a Hurry #Weekend Bites

I have been in nothing but a hurry since school started after Labor Day. My husband had surgery on his arm. He is doing well. My daughter joined the Field Hockey team and both of my kids need to be driven to their fencing class twice a week... oh, yeah, and all of those doctors appointments that I put off, because who wants to go to the doctors in the summer!

If I'm really together on one of these busy days I put a meal together in a crockpot in the morning. But this Chicken Curry in a Hurry dish can be made on the stove in about about 20 minutes. So keep the ingredients for it on hand.

This is such a great transition into Fall dish. A little heavier than Summer Fare but not quite a beef stew... love that it's slow cooker for this busy time of year.
