Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken and Potato Curry

The slow cooker has got to be the working mum’s best kitchen appliance friend, right?! 

When all you have to do is simply prepare the ingredients, add the liquid and flick on switch … that’s my kind of gadgetry! 

Then you can get back to life while the slow cooker slowly simmers away to produce a meal of mouthwatering, melting tenderness.

I was so chuffed with myself coming up with this flavourful creation which my whole family applauded! 

This Coconut Chicken and Potato Curry will definitely be making a regular guest appearances on the weekly meal planner.

Best part –  it makes so much you won’t have to cook again the next night!

    Hi Brenda. Can I ask what brand curry powder you use? And will this be mild enough for babies and small kids? Thanks!

      Hi Bec, I use the Simply Organic brand of herbs and spices which I get from my local health food store or iherb.
