! Today I am sharing with you my slow cooker chicken curry recipe. This is super simple, cheap, and perfect for any time of year. If you’re looking for some inspiration for other slow cooker recipes then be sure to check out my Easy slow cooker recipes (UK recipes) or my slow cooker beef recipes.

I love the simplicity of using the slow cooker. There is something so satisfying about being able to throw a load of ingredients together and then at the end of the day there is a delicious meal waiting for you.

I love the convenience of leaving the slow cooker to work its magic while I am working hard. Or out for the day. Or even just lazing around in my PJs. The slow cooker has been a godsend for us since we had a baby!

My method for slow cooker chicken curry:

This is SUCH an easy dish!

You CAN brown the vegetables and chicken, if you like, but you really don’t need to. This is the type of slow cooker dish that is perfect when it is all soft and lovely.

Place everything into the slow cooker.

Cook on high for 4-6 hours, or low for 8 hours.

Serve with your choice of sides and goodies. We love slow cooker rice and these 3 ingredient flatbreads that don’t even require yeast!
