Slow Cooker Curried Chicken

Another awesome slow-cooker recipe thanks to Real Simple.  I was flipping through my latest issue of Real Simple and came across this recipe and knew I had to make it.  I am a big curry fan and couldn't wait to give this a try in my slow cooker.  After sitting and waiting for Sweet Girl to get out of dance (the wait feels like forever and is so exhausting) it was nice to walk into the house and smell these great flavors and know dinner was already done and waiting for us.  It is recommended that you serve this over rice, my menu for the week had us eating a lot of rice so I changed it just a bit and served ours over rice noodles.  Enjoy!

What you need:
(I actually halved this recipe for our family and we had enough):
1/3 cup tomato paste
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 medium onion, chopped
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 10)
kosher salt and black pepper
1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice (I used rice noodles)
1/2 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt (I used low fat)
2 scallions, thinly sliced

What you do:
In a slow cooker, whisk together the tomato paste, garlic, curry powder, ginger, cumin, and ¾ cup water. Add the onion and stir to combine. Place the chicken on top and season with 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
Cover and cook until the chicken is tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours .
Twenty minutes before serving, cook the rice according to the package directions.
Just before serving, add the yogurt and ½ teaspoon salt to the chicken and stir to combine. Serve with the rice and sprinkle with the scallions.
