Easy slow cooker chicken curry

Perfect Saturday night curry.


  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 red pepper - cut into bitesized pieces
  • 450g diced chicken breasts
  • 450g potatoes - peeled and cut into bitesized pieces
  • 400g tin of tomatoes
  • 2-3 tsp curry powder - I use medium when cooking for the kids
  • 100g fresh spinach - roughly chopped.


  1. Heat the slow cooker to low.
  2. Add the onion, peppers, chicken, potatoes, tomatoes and curry powder into the pan, season with salt and pepper. I use a sauté slow cooker with removable pan so I bring the curry to the boil on the hob before putting the pan into the slow cooker base.
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
  4. Check the consistency of the sauce once cooked, if it's too watery add a couple of tsp of cornflour to a cup, mix to a smooth paste with water and add to the curry, stir in and leave for a few minutes to thicken.
  5. Add the spinach to the curry and leave it to stand for 2-3 minutes until the spinach wilts.
  6. Serve with rice, naan brad and a big salad.
