So if you haven’t figured out what leftovers is by now, you’re a little late to the party. It’s cool. You brought beer right? Kidding. I hate beer. It tastes like feet water. Don’t say no. I’m right. Maybe it’s because I’m so young, I still don’t like the taste of alcohol. Maybe. Or maybe because I’d rather waste my calories away on dark chocolate binges and late night serenades with sea side cheddar. Mmmm I love seaside cheddar.

Holy crap, I didn’t even tell you what leftovers means. No, it’s not the leftovers I had in my fridge. It’s a meal I have made in the past, loved, and wanted to make again since my pictures sucked ass back then. This post shows the disgusting picture that was taken back in the day when I was working 4 jobs and only used my camera phone at 5am. So, anyone who still had the balls to try out the recipe, EVEN AFTER looking at the picture, I love you. And applaud your bravery.

I fasted yesterday. A really long time. Like 26 hours long time. I’m going to teach you something so you never make the same mistake I do. So listen closely.

Do not, I repeat DO NOT, fast for 26 hours, while on your monthly gift, and attempt a Regionals wod…all on a Monday. Just don’t do it. Yes, I understand I just lost 10 male readers purely on the fact I said “monthly gift”, but I do not care. It’s all a terrible idea and I wish it on no one. I cried staring at the pull up bar. I cried sitting on the floor after the workout. I cried on my drive home to fix my makeup. AND I cried while doing my makeup. Are you serious Juli? Get your sh*t together. You’ve had your monthly gift, MONTHLY, for 10+ years now. If you don’t know how to control your emotions at this point, there’s no hope.

On the up side…oh wait…there is no up side. I’m kidding people, I’m not that negative. Up side: it was super hot today and my pants got so sweaty, it looked like I peed myself. Always searching for the awkward happiness in the small thing. Positive Polly right here.

    Very, very good! One of the best crockpot paleo recipes I have had, good work! I used 4 tablespoons of red curry paste and it had nice kick. Thank you!

  3. Jessica says:

    Who didn’t know curry was spicy? This girl! Lol. Great flavor but too hot for this weenie.

    My hubby loved it though.

    I found this recipe when I google searched Paleo chicken left overs. So I already had about 2 lbs of chicken cooked to use in this recipe. It whips up really well on the stove top as well. I used all the ingredients, just in a little different order. So, I cooked the peppers and onion in some fat, then added the garlic.
    Then broth and powders, after that reduced briefly I added the coconut milk and finished with my already cooked chicken to reheat. It was great. Thanks for the idea.

    4-6 tablespoons of curry is TOO MUCH! not a very balanced dish.

  5. Jerod says:

    Lmao. I love the before and after photo.
    Planning on making this sometime in the next week!

    Just made this for dinner tonight in our new slow cooker and it was delicious!! I put it over cauliflower rice (pan cooked in a little coconut oil with S&P) as suggested in previous comments. I made the curry spicier by adding red chile powder…my husband was a big fan! Next time I think I’ll try it over polenta. This was only my second attempt at a PaleOmg recipe- the 5 ingredient spaghetti squash pie has become a consistent go-to for me. I’ll try the buffalo chicken chili next weekend 🙂 Thanks so much, Julie!
