Recipe: Slow Cooker Coconut Curried Chicken post image

I’m in love with my slow cooker and I’ve lately been in love with curry. You may have seen my Curried Egg Salad or my Curried Chicken Salad. Using a slow cooker has to be the most convenient way to cook. And it is oh so easy. Even if you work full time you can throw a few ingredients into the crock pot in the morning and come home to a cooked meal and a house filled with the delectable fragrance of curry.

Slow Cooker Coconut Curried Chicken




  1. Place the carrots, onion and garlic at the bottom of the crock pot
  2. Place the raw chicken pieces on top of the vegetables, layering the chicken
  3. Add the spices over the chicken
  4. In a small pot melt the ghee and mix in the chicken stock and coconut cream until combined
  5. Pour this over the chicken
  6. Cook on low for 6 hours (it can go longer if you are not home yet)
  7. When done, remove the pieces of chicken and puree the liquid for gravy with an immersion blender
  8. Serve or refrigerate for later

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours

    Hi there….Im in Australia and have beautiful spring lamb coming into season…Just wondering if I could do this recipe with lamb instead of chicken? Looks really yummy!

    Hi Lisa,
    I would think it would taste great with lamb!

    What kind of mustard is best in this? Dijon or plain old yellow?
