Description

Crock Pot Chicken Curry with coconut milk has never been easier! This simple chicken recipe is the perfect sweet spicy weeknight meal, plus it’s loaded with veggies!


Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1″ cubes
  • 2 small potatoes, cubed
  • 4 carrots, cut into 1″ chunks
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1/2 red onion, cubed
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (13.5 oz.) coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons arrowroot
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro
  • 8 oz. snap peas
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  1. To a 7 qt Crock Pot add raw chicken, potatoes, carrots, red pepper and red onion.
  2. To a medium bowl add chicken broth, red curry paste, fresh ginger and garlic cloves. Whisk to mix everything together.
  3. Pour curry mixture into the crock pot. Stir the chicken and vegetables with a spoon so everything is coated with the curry mixture.
  4. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours.
  5. Remove 3 tablespoons of the liquid from the crockpot and place in a small bowl. Mix with 3 tablespoons of arrowroot and pour the mixture into the crock pot. This will help thicken the sauce.
  6. Next add in coconut milk, lime juice, fresh cilantro, and snap peas. Stir to mix everything together. Salt to taste.
  7. Cook on HIGH for an additional 30-45 minutes.
  8. Serve as is or over a bed of jasmine rice.
