Why in the Crockpot?

We’ve been eating a ton of chicken lately. I don’t know why that is such a surprise, because we sort of always have.

This of course translates into chicken everything and we were getting kind of tired of chicken breasts, chicken salad and shredded chicken in everything.

We just wanted something different, and we wanted it to be easy. So insert … the crockpot. Just dump and go. That’s all I wanted.

When all you have to do is come home, whip up some minute rice and spoon your delicious crockpot chicken curry over the top, your whole family will thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I use/add Cream of Mushroom Soup

A. So the short answer is yes. We tried a version including Cream of Mushroom soup, but we weren’t impressed. It cut down the curry flavor a lot and just didn’t taste right to us. However, this doesn’t mean you might not like it, so if you want to add some, go right ahead.

Q. Can I make this slow cooker curry chicken with vegetables?

A. Absolutely. You can add just about any vegetable you want. We love to add spinach, since it’s mild and adds a great flavor to the curry. But you can also add other vegetables.

Q. Can I make this slow cooker curry chicken with coconut milk?

A. YES! And we love it that way. The way to do that is to swap the coconut milk with the chicken broth. Same measurements.
