Most people I know love a good curry, but a lot of them can be greasy because the meat is either cooked in fat, or also very calorific because of cream added to it.

Chuck everything in the slow cooker with no need to pre-cook anything, and you have a lovely healthy curry to go!

I simply adore a slow cooker chicken curry as the meat just melts in your mouth; this dish is no different. It’s Slimming World friendly too as it’s tomato rather than cream based.

Ingredients (serves 3-4)

  • 3-4 chicken breasts, diced
  • 1 large onion, cut into slices
  • 1 large red pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 500g box of passata
  • 1/2 – 1 pack Spice N Tice chicken tikka spices (depending how much spice you like!)
  • Using a little Fry Light, brown the chicken in a large frying pan for 1-2 minutes, then drain any liquid. (Feel free to skip this step).
  • Chuck everything in the slow cooker and mix well.
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  • Enjoy your slow cooker chicken curry with rice and/or extra vegetables!

  3. Hi. Can I ask do you put the chicken in raw or do you need to brown off first?
    Thank you

    1. Hi. I sometimes brown it off, this just helps to seal in the flavour and juices, but it’s fine to put it in raw too 🙂

  4. This is a fantastic recipe, thank you for sharing.

  5. […] Of course, all of this will remain purely on my bucket list for a good few years, so for now, I’ll have to stick with my slow cooker chicken curry. […]
