Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry

Slow Cooker Chicken and Creamy Curry

Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry is a rich and creamy curry, made easy with curry paste and coconut milk.  I always have good intentions to roast and grind my own spices, but somehow time is rarely on my side. If you are short of time, this is the next best thing!

Coconut milk is such a great ingredient, it’s easily available in supermarkets and adds so much flavour to sweet and savoury dishes.  I can remember a time when it wasn’t so easy to come by and the only time you saw a coconut was when you won them at the fair!

 I do remember trying to make coconut milk by soaking desiccated coconut in water, it was a very poor,  thin sort of liquid, no comparison to the coconut milk in this Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry. 

 

Ingredients for Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry

 

It’s a really simple recipe, made even more convenient by cooking it in the Slow Cooker.  I used Madras curry paste as it has a nice medium heat and a good curry flavour.  However, you use the curry paste that you like, a Korma would be good if you prefer your curry a little milder.

Spicy and Creamy Slow Cooker Chicken and Coconut Curry

The Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry can be served straight out of the slow cooker with a sprinkling of cashew nuts toasted in a dry frying pan and an extra hit of coconut with shards of toasted coconut, both of which add a lovely crunchy texture to the dish.  We really enjoyed the curry, like all curries it was even better the next day.

    It sounds delicious! I love a good curry and this is so easy too. I’ve actually got a very simple lamb curry in my slow cooker right now and this is making me hungry and wish it would be ready for lunch and not dinner!
