Slow Cooker Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk


I make this curry with chicken, coconut milk, tomatoes, and carrots usually on busy weekends when I have projects around the house and no time to cook.

3 servings


  • 2 boneless chicken breasts, cubed

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • ½ (14 ounce) can coconut milk

  • 2 medium carrots, sliced

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons mild curry paste

  • 1 tablespoon finely ground almonds

  • 1 small bunch chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 tablespoon water, or as needed

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds

  • 1 ½ cups uncooked white rice


  1. Combine chicken, tomatoes, coconut milk, carrots, onion, garlic, curry paste, ground almonds, and 4/5 of the cilantro in the slow cooker and close the lid.

  2. Cook on High until chicken is cooked through, about 4 hours. If sauce is too thin, mix cornstarch with water in a small bowl and stir into the sauce. Cook for an additional 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, bring 3 cups water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  4. Serve curry over rice, sprinkled with remaining cilantro and sliced almonds.
