How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken Coconut Curry
Making this dish is so easy. Just a few minutes of hands-on time is all it takes to make decadent coconut curry! This curry simmers away all day in the slow cooker and makes your house smell amazing. Come dinner time, all you have to do is cook some rice and serve it all up.
First, add the coconut milk, onion, garlic, and seasonings to the slow cooker (here’s a great budget-friendly option if you need a new one!) and give it a good stir, then add the chicken. Cook on LOW for 6-7 hours.
Once cooked, take out the chicken and shred it up. Whisk the cornstarch and water together in a small bowl to make a slurry.
Add the shredded chicken and the cornstarch slurry into the slow cooker. Cook on LOW for an additional 20 to 30 minutes to thicken the sauce. Cook some rice while the curry is thickening up.
Serve the chicken and curry sauce over cooked white rice, sprinkle with cilantro, and serve naan bread on the side. Devour!
