Slow Cooker Chicken Curry – a bowl of this delicious, wonderfully fragrant, creamy chicken curry is sure to warm you up on a cold winter’s day.

Slow Cooker Chicken Curry

We are in the midst of a very cold and snowy winter, here in New England, and so it’s not surprising that I’ve been focusing lately on comfort foods. Last week I shared my family’s favorite soup – Italian Wedding Soup, and earlier this week I shared my husband’s recipe for a traditional Dutch comfort food — Dutch Hutspot.

The comfort food theme continues today with another of my family’s favorites – Slow Cooker Chicken Curry. I definitely think of curry as comfort food, especially when it is a creamy curry, such as this one. This curry gets it’s creaminess from a mixture of coconut milk and Greek yogurt. It is so delicious and I love that it is easy to make and is made in the slow cooker.

On a related side note, I happened to catch an episode of The Taste the other day and the challenge was comfort food. Chef Marcus Samuelsson, who I love (see my Shrimp Piri Piri post), selected chicken curry for his team to make. So, I definitely am not alone in viewing chicken curry as comfort food.

I love all the wonderful spices in this Slow Cooker Chicken Curry. And it is so easy to make, you put everything in the slow cooker and then let it simmer away for hours, filling your house with the delicious scents of cinnamon, cumin and ginger.

The fresh mint added to the sauce at the end really adds a wonderful layer of flavor and freshness to the dish. I like to add a dollop of yogurt to each serving and some additional fresh mint is nice sprinkled on top.

I adapted this recipe from one of my favorite slow cooker cookbooks, Southern Living: Slow-Cooker Cookbook, and made this recipe in my 6-quart Crock Pot brand slow cooker, which I love. These are affiliate links to the cookbook and similar Crock Pot models available at Amazon:
