Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken

Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken

This was such an easy recipe to make. I mixed everything together the night before, and threw the crock pot on when I left for work in the morning. There is nothing better than coming home to a house that smells of delicious curry! Cut this recipe in half if you're cooking for 1-2 people as it makes quite a bit. Enjoy!

Tip: This recipe originaly called for the peppers and cauliflower to be added at the begining of the cooking time. I found waiting to add them near the end gave this dish kept the veggies nice and crisp.

Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken


  • 2lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced and seeded (I used one red and one orange)
  • 1/2 cauliflower head, cut into small florets
  • 1 can bamboo shoots
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1tbs fresh ginger (about the same amount as the garlic)
  • 1 red fresno pepper, seeded and halved
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 3/4 tbs garam masala
  • 1tsp curry powder
  • 1tsp turmeric
  • 2tsp salt
  • 2tsp cayenne pepper (optional. Leave out if you don't want it spicy!)
  • 2 cups canned unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1.5 tbs cornstarch
  • 2 tbs water
  • 0% fat plain greek yogurt and cilantro for garnish


  1. Combine onion, garlic, ginger, fresno pepper, tomato paste, coconut milk, salt, turmeric, curry powder, and garam masala in a blender (or food processor). Pulse until mostly smooth. Poor sauce mixture into slow cooker.
