Crock Pot Chicken Curry

Hey guys!

It's time for our weekly recipe blog! Today we are making Chicken Curry. This recipe is super simple, low calorie and ridiculously good! Bonus - it's a slow cooker recipe! We LOVE our crock pots. There's nothing better than coming home to a ready-made dinner. We could not survive soccer season (or dance season, or basketball season, or baseball season...ok you get the point) with out them!!  Alright, let's begin!
*For a printable recipe card, check out the bottom of this blog.

Nutrition Facts w/o rice:
It makes 6 One Cup Servings (over rice this is a decent sized serving, but if you are eating it without the rice you might want to double your serving!)
Calories per serving - 172
Carbs - 12
Fat - 5
Protein - 19

How awesome are these stats?? We checked and double checked them because even we didn't believe them. But it's true! So EAT UP!!!!!!

Here's what you need:
not pictured: minced garlic...whoops!
Spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. I used a "Misto". You put your olive oil in, pump a few times and much healthier than any chemical-ridden cooking sprays you can buy at the store....but I digress...

Trim and chop 1 lb of boneless, skinless, chicken breast (I used tenderloins 'cause that's what I had) and 2 bell peppers (I usually use green but my Kroger was out of them, so I went with red and yellow....fancy!) into fairly large chunks.

Add 1-2 TBS* of curry powder, 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1/2 tsp sea salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper and a dash of ground red pepper (be careful, it's SPICY! A little goes a long way.)
*this is depending on how spicy your curry powder is, I used muchi curry and it is HOT!! Plain ole curry is alot milder so you could definitely get away with 2 TBS or more!*

If you are using canned pineapple add about 1/2 of the juice out of the can into the pot. If you are using fresh, add 1/2 cup of pineapple juice. Add one *can* of light coconut milk. Mix it all up and cook on high 4-5 hours or low 6-8 hours.  

1 hour before you eat (or 2 if on low) add the following:
2-3 tomatoes, chopped into large chunks and 3/4 cup of chopped pineapple.
(note: if you want to throw it all in and let it all cook the whole time, you can, I've done it. It just tastes a little better if you add the tomatoes and pineapple at the end)

Let it cook the remaining time and you're ready to eat! It is really good over brown rice or you can eat it like a stew. Whatever you want!

  1. Yum yum yum! I was looking for a crockpot chicken curry recipe. Unfortunately I ran out of curry powder tonight while making curried vegetable stir fry (sounds good but sadly it was a flop) so will need to stock up before I give this one a shot!

    1. Awww! That stinks about your stir fry! I hate when something promises to be good and turns out badly. Thanks for reading!! I <3 your blog, by the way! You have a beautiful family! - Holly
