Slow Cooker Butter Chicken Curry Served with Basmati Rice

Ok over the next several days you may notice a bit of strange navigation things taking place here, why? Well good question I have decided to implement two very big changes here one is more navigational and structural which should all through the beauty of WordPress permalinks correct itself. I have decided to start a test here as it is the smallest of my sites, therefore the easiest to test it on that a friend of mine recently did and that is move all my articles off of pages and into the post section to you the biggest change will be every article will now have a picture. Plus a feature picture so it is more informative and appealing hopefully.

The other will be phased in over time starting with this post. I have decided to expand Southern Fried Chicken to include all two legged creatures (not frogs and toads). What? Yes in our expansion it dawns on me the site had a limited amount of room to grow and in today’s world of recipe sites growth is important if you want to attract new visitors, which what webmaster doesn’t. New visitors means new revenues (yes I do have to pay hosting “very good hosting at that”) and feed four kids and a disabled husband so yes I do think of revenue sorry, I need to live too.

I mean it is nice to have the international fried chicken category but even with wok in hand how many ways can you fry a chicken before it just gets repetitive. So I introduce my first non-fried chicken recipe below is my take on a famous Indian dish done in the crockpot not the fryer. I will over time also start including recipes for things like turkey and wild game birds if it sort of walked on two legs it is fair game from here on out.

Give me a few days to tide up the back office and get that all working flawlessly and then a new stream of all kinds of recipes here. What you will not find are a few seemingly obvious omissions like grilled chicken I have a barbeque site so it is there and most crockpot recipes are at the main company blog so not to many other than this one. In other words if it is more appropriate to another of my sites like soup it will be on that site.

As a first for us here at Southern Fried Chicken we introduce our first non-fried chicken recipe. Why is this important? If you like fried chicken why should you have to look elsewhere for it cooked in say something other then loads of oil. It is possible you know to cook a chicken in something other than oil, really. So that is why I decided to start doing other kinds of recipes for chicken and more to come soon. Just a little bit of housekeeping to get things in ship shape and then full birds ahead.
