Slow Cooker Curry Chicken Stew – A Winter Warmer

Slow Cooker Curry Chicken Stew – A Winter Warmer

It’s still winter and it’s still kind of cold out. This winter hasn’t been too terribly bad, but still a few cold spells that require good bowls of warm foods, just like this slow cooker curry chicken stew. I enjoy curry and coconut flavours together and like adding in any variety of vegetables to increase that veggie intake. This stew recipe was made to warm us up and it did just that! With just enough heat from the curry to take the edge off, the sweet coconut balanced everything out.

To start, simply gather the ingredients. I like to go crazy with the vegetables if I can, cleaning out that vegetable tray from my fridge and throwing in peppers, carrots, onions, celery, green beans, cauliflower, mushrooms… the sky is the limit! For this time I only had peppers and onions on hand so I also added in a can of water chestnuts and bamboo shoots.

Whisk the coconut milk, chicken broth, peanut butter, fish sauce, lime juice, curry paste, brown sugar and spices together in a bowl. Put the chicken into the slow-cooker and pour mixed sauce over top. Set your cooker to low and slow-cook for about 2 – 3 hours, until the chicken is cooked. 

Side note, if you want you can make your own chicken broth for this and any recipe that needs it!

Enjoy with rice on the side!
