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!

Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.

Here are some of the ingredients you’ll need:

Chicken stock
Coconut milk
Curry powder
Garlic powder
Basmati rice
