I couldn't find a satisfying slow cooker recipe for curry chicken, so I decided to create my own, combining the best parts of several recipes. The ingredients noted as optional can be added if you like an extra kick. I used a 6.5-quart Crock Pot for this meal, but it should fit in a 5-quart just fine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the wet ingredients into the crock (wine, coconut milk, water).
  2. Add spices (garlic, ginger, curry powder, cinnamon stick), peanut butter and bouillon cube, stir well.
  3. Salt and pepper chicken pieces as desired, then add to crock along with potatoes and onion, stir well to coat.
  4. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or on high for 4 to 5 hours, stirring once or twice.
  5. If a thicker consistency is desired once cooked, combine cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water and mix well. Stir slowly into crock and cook an additional 15 to 20 minutes on high.
  6. Serve over noodles or rice of choice, garnished with cilantro.

Unfortunately, this was very bland and so disappointing. Still looking for a great crock pot curry recipe...

i think there are too many different flavors here i used a different recipe for curry chicken last week and it was much simpler yet much tastier DH said it was plain and unfulfilling

This is really really good. I followed the recipe pretty much as shown except I substituted chicken broth in place of the white wine. Served over pasta this was really delicious. Some may find the heat as shown to be a bit much, but I have a pretty high tolerance. Thanks to Matt & Mollee
