Thai Chicken Meatball Curry (Slow Cooker)

Recipe by duonyte
READY IN: 5hrs 20mins




  • Mix chicken or turkey, breadcrumbs, half of the cilantro, lemongrass and chile peppers in a large bowl, combining thoroughly.
  • If not frying, drop walnut-sized meatballs into a 4 qt slow cooker (I coat with a little oil to make cleanup easier). Cover and cook on High for about 1 hour to set the meatballs. (For all I know you don't need to do this - it might work just as well with the sauce added immediately - but this is how I did it).
  • Combine the remaining ingredients except the cilantro in a small bowl; pour over the meatballs, reduce to Low and cook for 4 hours, or cook on High for 2 hours.
  • If frying, form the meat into walnut-sized meatballs. Heat oil in a large skillet and quickly fry the meatballs until browned. Transfer to slow cooker.
  • Make the sauce as in Step 3 and pour into the frying pan, stirring to scrape up the fond; pour over the meatballs and cook on Low for 6 hours or on High for 3 hours.
  • Serve immediately with steamed rice, garnished with the remaining cilantro.
