Boneless Chicken Breast with Tomatoes, Coconut Milk, and Chickpeas in the Slow Cooker


This is a super easy slow cooker dish I make when I don't have much time for prep as everything just goes in the slow cooker without any previous cooking and I serve it over rice. It is not spicy because otherwise my kids won't eat it, so feel free to spice it up to your liking.

  • 1 (14 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 5 fluid ounces coconut milk

  • 5 fluid ounces chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoons curry powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cubed

  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes

  • 2 carrots, chopped

  • 1 onion, thinly sliced

  • ¾ cup frozen peas

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped

  • ground black pepper to taste


  1. Combine tomato sauce, coconut milk, chicken broth, curry powder, salt, and cayenne pepper in a slow cooker. Add chicken, chickpeas, potatoes, carrots, and onion. Mix well with the liquid in the slow cooker.

  2. Cook until chicken is cooked through, about 4 hours on High or 8 hours on Low. Add peas and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Cook an additional 5 minutes. Divide among plates and sprinkle with cilantro.

Cook's Note:

Make sure to cut the potatoes fairly small, so they are cooked through. Feel free to substitute sweet potatoes for the potatoes.
