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! Today I am sharing with you my slow cooker chicken curry recipe. This is super simple, cheap, and perfect for any time of year.

There you go. The finished result! I think this slow cooker chicken curry is lovely. It is quick, simple, cheap and healthy. If you want to bulk this out a little more you can add a tin of chickpeas.

We tend to enjoy this with slow cooker rice and naan bread. Sometimes Bombay potatoes too!
