Slow Cooker Chicken Curry from One Lovely Life

Slow Cooker Chicken Curry (Paleo Friendly!)

  • Author: One Lovely Life
  • Total Time: 3-4 Hours
  • Yield: About 3 cups (4-6 Servings) 1x


Slow Cooker Chicken Curry – This yellow chicken curry is such a tasty crock pot dinner! You’ll LOVE the sauce! (Gluten Free, Paleo, Whole30)

PS – It’s a bit rich, so we usually get 6 servings out of this (paired with sides). If you’ve got a bigger appetite, you may only get 4-5 servings.


  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast or chicken thighs
  • 1 onion, diced (I like red/purple onion)
  • 12 Tbsp, finely minced jalapeño (seeds and ribs removed)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 Tbsp.)
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. yellow curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (or more, to taste)
  • 1 (13.5oz) can full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh basil, minced


  1. Place chicken, onion, jalapeño, garlic, ginger, curry powder, salt, and coconut milk in the crock of your slow cooker.
  2. Stir to combine the sauce a bit, then cover with the lid.
  3. Cook on HIGH 3-4 hours, or LOW 7-8 hours.
  4. Shred the chicken with two forks, and mix back into the sauce with fresh herbs.
