Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken

More slow cooking…yes!  So we went to brunch with friends and inevitably as the kids were playing together the conversation drifted into ‘what’s for dinner’. I started discussing my current slow cooker obsession and my friend shared this wonderful recipe that I decided to tweak a bit for my family’s needs (ahem, ingredients and time I had available).

There are a lot of ingredients in this dish which creates the lovely layers of flavor as is typical for curries.   I am adding this one to my weekend rotation of larger meals. It was delicious and it’s been a long time since I’ve made a curry in the slow cooker.

Steps to put this on your table:

  1. Brown the chicken, using the olive (or vegetable oil) on all sides over medium high heat, this will take about 3 – 4 minutes per side and you may have to work in batches, depending on the size of your pan.
  2. Transfer the chicken and all of the other ingredients to the slow cooker.
  3. Set (low heat, 4.5 hours to 5 hours) and forget!
  4. I served mine over a basmati and wild rice + lentils combination that I love to make.  Enjoy!
