Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry Recipe

I decided to make a cauliflower mash for the coconut chicken curry to rest atop instead of adding the cauliflower into the slower cooker along with all the other ingredients.

I was very happy with how this turned out and was thrilled to have saved on the additional calories by not adding rice or pasta as the base.


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (frozen or thawed)
1 medium red pepper, seeded and cut into chunks
1 medium red onion, skinned and cut into chunks
3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can coconut milk (I used light)
1 small can tomato paste
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon butter
2 head cauliflower, stemmed and cut into chunks
2 small russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

-In a large slow cooker, add the chicken breasts, red pepper, onion, carrots, and garlic.
-In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, tomato paste, turmeric, cumin, cardamom, ginger, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, cinnamon and ground cloves.
-Add the coconut milk mixture to the slow cooker, cover and set the dial to high.
-After a few hours (3 or so), give the mixture a quick stir and cover again.
-Continue cooking an additional 2-3 hours until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
-Remove the chicken breasts from the mixture and shred the meat from all 4 breasts with two forks.
-Return the shredded meat back into the cooker, add the butter and cilantro, and stir to combine.
-Reduce the heat to low while you make the cauliflower mash.
-In a large stockpot, add the potatoes and cauliflower. Add enough water to cover and 1 teaspoon of salt.
-Cook over medium heat until both the potatoes and cauliflower are fork-tender.


-Drain, add the Greek yogurt, butter, and black pepper and mash as you would normally do to make mashed potatoes.
-Serve the Coconut Chicken Curry over the cauliflower mash and enjoy!!!

Until we eat again,



  1. This looks great! I'm always on the hunt for more curry recipes 🙂 Awesome SRC pick

  2. My husband has been talking about curry a lot lately – but I have never had it. Guess I better jump off the diving board, eh?

    Happy Reveal Day!

  3. Love, love, love coconut curry. I bet this was yummy. I'm adding more crock pot dishes to my blog so I can't wait to try this. Great SRC pick.

  4. Renee – I'm so glad that you really liked it and liked my blog! Thank you for the wonderful compliments! 🙂

    On another note, I really need to make this recipe again…

  5. That curry looks great, I never thought to use a slow cooker, I am going to make this, I just love curries but am shy with spices. I have to get over that, my daughter calls me the anti spice. I can't wait to try this.

  6. I love how you give such wonderful write-ups about the blogger you were assigned for this SRC installment. You certainly did her dish proud. This coconut chicken curry looks great and serving on a bed of mashed cauliflower was a great idea.

  7. Oh wow, this looks great! I always want to make curry recipes but am afraid my family won't enjoy them. But this looks too good to pass up, especially on a bed of mashed cauliflower!

  8. Wonderful curry! Love that it also has veggies in it too! Great SRC pick!
