Thai curry is definitely a go to flavor when at the restaurant, but it is always too spicy for the kids.  By making this version at home I can adjust the heat to suit their taste.  Also, by using the slow cooker our dinner is ready after a busy day running them around.

Slow Cooker Curry Chicken

Yields: 4 servings


  • 2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tbsp butter, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 3/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 3/4 tsp ground curry
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 28-oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup cashew or almond butter
  • 1 cup greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Add the following to your slow cooker: butter, onions, garlic, and ginger.  Blend ingredients while spreading butter around sides and bottom of cooker.
  2. Add the tomatoes, brown sugar, chili powder, ground coriander, curry, cinnamon, cumin, salt and pepper.  Stir.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the cashew or almond butter with the broth, then add to the slow cooker.
  4. Cover and cook sauce on low 5 to 8 hours.
  5. While the sauce is cooking, cut the chicken into bite size pieces and sauté in the oil of your choice.  Set aside.
  6. Using an immersion blender, puree the sauce until smooth.  Then add the Greek yogurt or sour cream.  Stir well.
  7. In a large bowl combine the chicken with the sauce and serve over hot rice. Check this out on how to make  perfect white rice, http://pamsdailydish.com/how-to-make-perfect-white-rice/
  8. Top with cilantro.

Note from Regina:  Since the recipe makes a good amount of sauce I recommend adding the sauce to the chicken.  This allows you to have extra for another meal that just may not be with chicken.  Sauce also tastes great with veggies or beef!
