Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken

My family went crazy for this concoction the other day. The blend of curry, coconut milk and other spices left even my very pickiest eater very happy. Such comfort food for this blustery weather.


1 onion
2 pimento pepper (optional)
1/4 cup cilantro
1 14-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon sesame oil
4 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon minced ginger (or more like me)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1.5 tablespoons curry powder
Pinch red pepper flakes(more to taste )
Salt and pepper to taste
2 pounds boneless chicken breasts
1 cup of frozen peas
1 red pepper chopped
Cilantro and green onions to serve


1- Chop onions, garlic, pimento peppers and cilantro. I use my mini chopper so that I don't cry. Onion tears are real tears!

2- Put mixture into slow cooker with the chicken and combine until the chicken is well coated. 

3- Add all the spices together with the coconut milk and stir until combined. Again for ease, I used my mini chopper.

4- Add mixture to slow cooker and cook for 3-4 hours on high heat or 5-6 hours on lower heat. Each slow cooker is different!

5- In the last 15 minutes, add your peas, red peppers and mushrooms and shred your chicken using two forks. They will continue to cook with the heat long after. 

6- Serve warm over rice (or in my case, cauliflower rice). Garnish with green onions and extra cilantro if you wish!

So delicious but super easy-- it's hard to mess this one up!


  1. No wonder they went crazy for this dish! Those ingredients sound amazing and so flavorful! Hope you have a great Day pretty lady!

  2. I have been LOOKING for a white curry recipe. One time I had one that had potatoes and carrots and chicken in it. It was amazing and I could never find a recipe. This might do the trick!

  3. OMG this sounds SO amazing! I LOVE curry but I've never tried making it in the crockpot (actually, I've only tried making it once...) definitely going to have to try this. <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  4. This recipe sounds amazing! Can't wait to try it especially since it's a crockpot winner.


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
