I’m hoping so @traceyross - through the breast in 15mins after the bone in bits and cut each breast in 3. A bit of something for everyone hopefully xx

Wow a whole chicken sounds good @Damian Green I’ve never curried a whole one before. Well done for knowing what to do with it. I’m looking forward to hearing how it compared to your last xacuti with it all in different parts. Good way for a chicken will taste amazing I bet.

I’m sure I did it from Hari’s slow cooker book thinking about it - but did the first bit on the hob as it’s easier to control the heat. All the best Tracey xx

Thank you @Damian Green for your tips it is probably the thought of bone but how you think of it with whole spices sounds sensible. Your xacuti does sound really nice in the slow cooker. It sounds like a real winner.

I’ve just decided to do this recipe tonight @traceyross as I’ve got a whole chicken which I’m going to separate into pieces and put the breasts in as well as the thighs and drumsticks...so that’s another option for you so you get the breast meat but with the flavour from the bone in chicken!?? Worth a thought??

@traceyross I know a few people not happy eating meat off bone so you’re definitely not alone. I did the Xacuti chicken in the slow cooker having done it all on the hob for the first bit and it seriously just fell off the bone. Maybe one way of thinking would be to think of the bones as whole spices in your curry and remove them with the cinnamon, star anise, bay etc or ask someone else to go thro it. Using bone in thighs you won’t even see the bone adding them during cooking and that’s what I use mostly as Sue isn’t too keen on drumsticks. Xx

Yes I usually cut boneless thigh portions into pieces, Tracey, but the photo on Hari's Xacuti Chicken showed she left them as whole large portions, so I followed suit. But I'm quite sure you can do what you prefer, once you're confident enough to feel you can "adapt" a recipe @traceyross 👌👩‍🍳👩‍🍳💕

Thank you @Jo dunn I’ve only tried it once for the Pepper chicken ..it was very tasty it’s just moving out my comfort zone from chicken tenderloins! I thought I would try thighs first I do know it’s tastier than chicken breast. Do you usually chop the thigh meat for curries as the thighs I have been buying look huge?

Do try cooking on the bone sometime Tracey. It really does give a huge boost to the flavour. You could always remove the bone before serving, as the meat should fall away from the bone easily 🍗🍗💕

Thank you @Damian Green I’ve not cooked on the bone often. Those roti wraps for leftovers sound really good 😋

Definitely needs to be on the bone @traceyross for the flavour depth. I can’t wait to do this one again- I had left overs and use the chicken to make roti wraps - bloody gorgeous !! Xx

Looks like another winner @traceyross! Did you use chicken pieces rather than on the bone? 💕
