Easy Slowcooker Chicken Curry

This week I remade the butternut millet casserole from last week because I liked it so much and it is completely gone. The millet recipe makes a bit of a mess in the kitchen, so I needed an easy slowcooker recipe to go with it for the week. This one is adapted from a Martha Stewart recipe to make it into a Mealpod, and I couldn't believe how EASY it was AND there are no weird ingredients if you have Indian spices already. The result is good (not amazing) but definitely something I would make again because it is easy and cheap.


Easy Slowcooker Chicken Curry

Published 01/29/2012
This chicken curry is the easiest crockppot recipe I think I have done in a long time. It has been adapted from Martha Stewart's Chicken Curry recipe to be made into a Mealpod.


  • 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
  • 2 medium onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 1/2 tbs Madras curry powder (or your favorite)
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 ts sea salt
  • 4 tsp garlic minced
  • 16 oz. frozen green peas
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 cups (1 can) lite coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice


  1. In a large slow cooker, toss in chicken, onion, ginger, curry powder, coriander, cumin, salt, and garlic.
  2. Set the crockpot on high and cook for 3-4 hours or until chicken is soft and can be shredded easily.
  3. When the chicken is finished, add in coconut milk, carrots and peas and cook for 20 more minutes.
  4. In your rice cooker add 1 1/4 cups rice and 2 1/2 cups water and cook. If you don't have a rice cooker, cook according to rice directions.
  5. Remove the chicken and shred with two forks and add back into the crockpot.
  6. Remove about 1.5 cups of juice from the crockpot and set aside.
  7. Add rice to the crockpot and combine. Turn off slow cooker and let cool. Package into 12 Mealpods. Store the extra sauce in the fridge for the week to add to your Mealpod if you like or you can toss it.

    This means that you literally kill fat by eating Coconut Fat (in addition to coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
