Easy Slow Cooker chicken curry recipe 

We love this Crock pot chicken curry here, love it!  and it’s so easy and what’s better than arriving home after a day at work or at the weekend when you’re out enjoying yourselves, to a delicious pot full of tender fragrant chicken curry and a house that smells amazing. It couldn’t be simpler 

It hands down beats a takeaway in my humble opinion, it’s healthy ish too!

I like to call it a fakeaway

 

What Chicken should I use for my curry? 

I use bone less and skinless chicken thighs

You can use chicken breasts if you prefer 

 

How to make Chicken Curry in a Slow Cooker or crockpot

Well to be honest it couldn’t be easier and I’ll take you through it step by step. There’s a full recipe card at the bottom of this post with the exact quantities etc 

 

Step 1 – Add your Chicken Curry Ingredients to the Slow Cooker 

Just chuck everything in the slow cooker 

 

Step 2 – Add your spices 

and the spices 

 

Step 3 – Add your liquids 

Finally add the tin of chopped tomatoes & the tin of Light Coconut milk 

Then cook….

 

How long should I cook my chicken curry in the slow cooker? 

This recipe is perfect after 6 hours on a low setting.

The meat is tender and literally falls apart – it’s so delicious 

I have also left it for 6 hours on low – say when I’m at work and that too is fine 

The chicken will be super tender and will break up into lumps of luscious chicken 

 

Ta-Dah! Easy Slow cooked Chicken Curry! 

If you like a little sweetness – try stirring through a tablespoon of mango chutney. I don’t feel I need it but if you do, go ahead 

What to serve with your Chicken Curry 

So many ideas!! 

  • With rice – I like the basmati rice with wild rice added 
  • On a baked potato / jacket potato 
  • I served it before simply with broccoli and greens 
  • Naan Breads maybe 

I also like to make my Healthy Onion Bahjis

Can I freeze my Slow Cooker Chicken Curry?  

Yes you can, it’s perfect for batch cooking for this purpose 

Please freeze in sealed containers, label them up (don’t forget to date them) and eat within a couple of months 

When you are ready to eat, simply defrost in the fridge and reheat in a pan on the hob. Ensure your curry is piping hot before you serve

Slow Cooker Choice 

Lots of people ask me about which slow cooker I would recommend 

Well it has to be this one, it has a sear function for browning – so a lot less washing up and a way more flavour for your recipes
