Kuure-ed Chicken (A Yooper-Inspired Recipe)

“A lot of you don't know it, but Yooper and I are diet buddies. We were chatting on the phone one Friday morning and he told me how he admired my talent of just "coming up" with a recipe off the top of my head. That morning, with Yoop's words echoing in my head, I created this curried chicken recipe. And guess what, Yooper? It's legal for Somersizing. Non-Sommersizers can serve this with some Basmati rice. Mark, I return the compliment by naming this dish after you! Prep time includes marinating, but cook time does not include crockpot option.”
