Slow Cooker Chicken Curry (Recipe from the incredible blog The Lemon Bowl)

What You Will Need

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into about 1/2 to 1 inch dice
  • ½ cup coconut milk (I prefer regular, but you can use light here)
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne powder (for those who like a spicier curry)
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • cilantro (for garnish)

What You Will Do

  1. In the bottom of the slow cooker, whisk together coconut milk, chicken stock, tomato sauce, curry powder, salt and cayenne.
  2. Add chicken breasts, onion, chickpeas and sweet potatoes. Using tongs, gently toss ingredients together to ensure evenly coated.
  3. Cook on Low for 8 hours or High for 4 hours (I did high for four hours b/c I was getting hangry).
  4. Using two forks, shred cooked chicken (if it’s easier, go ahead and remove it from the cooker to shred). Stir in peas and lemon juice 5 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve over brown rice and with plenty of fresh cilantro. (And hot sauce if you like it spicier!)
