Recipes: Easiest Ever Curry Chicken

Okay, so this one’s a no-brainer but the results are just too good not to share…

A couple of days ago, I had some curry chicken going in the slow cooker. I opened it up to give it a stir and the smells wafted out into the living room where Aristotle was reading. To my amazement, Aristotle, my “hard to please” eater, jumped up and exclaimed, “Oh Mum! You’ve made a surprise for me! I know what it is… it’s curry chicken!” And when dinner was finally served, he ate everything without requiring any prompting or nagging! After dinner, I was lavished with compliments about my wonderful dinner that took me all of 10 minutes to prepare (longer if you need to chop up your chicken and clean it up) and the rest of the cooking time in the slow cooker. How can I not post about it after being made to feel like such a domestic goddess?

Curry Chicken Sauce

I’ve always been a bit more of a rendang person myself, but I am quite fond of this curry chicken, too. The base sauce is Brahim’s Kuah Kari Ayam. All you need to add is:

  • 500g Chicken
  • potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • a few tomatoes diced – to give it the “umami” flavour
  • 200ml coconut milk

Simmer for about an hour and ta da! Dinner is served. Now sit back and wait for the compliments.

Oh. I should add… It’s not spicy at all so if you want more kick, you need to add more chili. My Mum blends them into a paste but I have no experience whatsoever since I’m not after the kick and have never ever added chili to anything I eat, so I can’t help you there…

Other packet curry sauces we have tried that will also work:
