Slow Cooker Curry Chicken (Whole30, Paleo & Kid-Friendly)

I’ve been following Lexi’s Clean Kitchen for a while now and one dish I keep meaning to try is this slow cooker chicken curry dish. My first thought was to INSTANT POT the heck out of it, but then I kind of felt sorry for my sad & lonely crock-pot that has been collecting dust since we brought home our shiny new Instant Pot. So I decided to go along with the original recipe instructions and brought back old faithful to my kitchen game.

I paired the curry chicken with my Coconut Cauliflower Rice and roasted asparagus & baby bell peppers (just oil, salt & pepper at 400 for 15 minutes).  The flavors all melded together nicely and I’m pumped to try the leftovers tonight!

MAKE IT KID-FRIENDLY
(not Whole30/Paleo)

To my complete shock, my kids gobbled this right up.  I served over white rice with my Green Smoothie.

  • Serve over white rice.
  • Serve with choice vegetable (carrots/cucumber/celery) and Dump Ranch.
