Recipe for Slow Cooker Curried Chicken

Recipe for Slow Cooker Curried Chicken #crockpot #slowcooker
Makes 4-6 servings

1 cup diced onion
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp grated ginger
2 tsp curry powder
2 tsp oil
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp quick-cooking tapioca
5 or 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and each cut into 4 pieces
Salt and pepper
1 (5 oz) container plain Greek yogurt
Toppings:  cilantro, raisins, almonds

1.  Combine onion, garlic, ginger, curry powder, oil and tomato paste in a microwave-safe bowl.  Place in microwave and cook for 5 minutes, stirring every minute.  Transfer to slow cooker.
2.  Add the broth and the tapioca to the slow cooker.  Salt and pepper the chicken and place into the slow cooker.  
3.  Cover and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours.  
4.  Add in yogurt and stir.  Salt and pepper to taste.
5.  Serve chicken and sauce over rice and garnish with desired toppings.

I was pleasantly surprised with the results of this recipe.  I loved the creamy texture after I added in the yogurt.  The garlic, onion and curry powder give it a strong, but not over-powering flavor.  My family ate this without complaining...always a happy thing for a mom.  3 1/2 stars.


  1. Great recipe, Karen, I like the use of tapioca to thicken the gravy...I love Indian food and write about it on my blog:)

  2. This looks so good! Slow cooker recipes are the best. We loved having you at our "Strut Your Stuff Saturday.' We hope you'll be back again soon! -The Sisters

  3. Mmmmm, this looks great! And how awesome that your entire family ate it, I hope mine will too. If not, Ill eat it all :)

  4. Hi Karen! This sounds yummy! I'm making it now and after I added the yogurt, it separated/curdled. Two questions... what did I do wrong and can I fix it?? Thx!!

  5. Lisa, I'm not sure why it curdled. Mine was fine. That is really weird. I'll look into it and see if I can fine an answer.
