Slow Cooker Green Thai Chicken Curry

I know some people think they’re Retro but I love my slow cooker and I use it about 3 times a week.  I work in the afternoons so it’s perfect.  I lump everything in it in the morning and switch it on before I head out.  It saves me rushing around trying to cook in the midst of Madame’s bedtime routine.  My husband and I found that we were eating later and later so now as soon as she is in bed dinner is served.

I thought I would start compiling a few of my favourite recipes.  The lovely Dawn at the The Moiderer is also compiling a list and has some slow cooker tips so do pop over and check out some of the recipes.  She also has a Mclinky so you can add your own recipes as well.  I quite fancy trying the Creamy Pesto Chicken.

My only tip is always brown meat before you put it in even if the recipe doesn’t call for it.

Without further ado…here is my first recipe.

I love thai curries, but I haven’t tried making it in my slow cooker yet. Thanks for sharing this :)

We use the slow cooker a lot here too… and it ROCKS!!!
If it were for the wife we’d low cook everyday… and she actually did that last year… :)

I love my slow cooker, I don’t use it as much as I used to. As for curries in slow cooker,
because my oven and stove top were in use, I made a beef rendang using the s/cooker today and it is brilliant. Sheila

This sounds lovely.
I have recently started using the slow cooker but I’m not sure whether the meat has to be immersed in liquid. Can you advise? Thanks
