Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome. Recipes are enjoyed, but you can just spell your name with macaroni noodles, take a picture, publish it on your blog, and link right up to the carnival. That’s fine with us.In other words, the Food on Fridays parameters are not at all narrow. I think of it as a virtual pitch-in where everyone brings something to share; even if the content of one item is unrelated to the rest, we sample it all anyway and have a great time.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (the big one above or the new smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post and join us through Mr. Linky.Here’s a Mr. Linky tutorial:

Food on Fridays with AnnAll I can say is that if you like curry a little bit—and if you like sweet potatoes a lot—this dish is the next thing you should try in your crockpot.Crockpot Chicken Curry with Sweet Potatoes (and coconut-milk-rice)Ingredients:4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts1 onion2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced2/3 cup orange juice1 tsp salt1/4 tsp ground pepper3 tsp curry powder1 clove garlic, mincedInstructions:Main Dish: Cut the chicken breasts in half and half again, so they are skinny strips. Or you could cut them into cubes, I suppose. Arrange in the bottom of the crockpot. Cut up the onion in big pieces and place on top of the chicken. Peel and dice the sweet potatoes and spread on top of onion and chicken. Mix all the spices into the orange juice and pour over the top. Place the lid on the crockpot and cook for 5-6 hours on low (add liquid if your crockpot cooks a little hot or if you think you might be late–you can add more OJ or add some chicken broth or water with bouillon).Rice: One typical can of coconut milk yields about 2 C of liquid. I made the rice in a rice cooker using 2 C rice and for the liquid, 2 C coconut milk + 2 C water. The coconut milk adds subtle flavor to the rice, jazzing up the entire dish when served together. (** Updated **) Prepare rice as you normally would on the stove or in a rice cooker.I’ve doubled this many times and it does well in my big crockpot. On the other hand, tonight I made the standard amount in a baking dish in the oven.Visit this link for a nice photo-tutorial on how to prepare this dish.
