Welcome to my Slimming World Chicken Curry recipe In The Slow Cooker. Delicious creamy mild chicken curry slow cooked in the crockpot and then served with vegetables or rice. Easy to prepare and allows you to set and forget.
Dominic hates curry. Whether it is chicken curry, beef curry or even vegetarian curry, he would rather run a marathon than eat it. He hates the taste of curry sauce and would always choose a Thai curry with coconut milk over a traditional Indian one.
This means that I don’t get the opportunity to have a chicken curry very often and I clearly used the blog as an excuse to make myself one. You see I hate the idea of cooking separately and would normally rather go without then do separate meals.
But it also felt a shame that I have never really had a decent homemade chicken curry in the slow cooker and this was the perfect time to have one. Plus my daughter is now 2 and loves chicken no matter how you cook it.
So I set to work and I made this Slimming World friendly, completely Syn Free curry for us to tuck into. But like with most of my slow cooker recipes I always create them for four people in mind, not 1 and a toddler so after a generous portion at lunchtime there was still loads left.
What I did was in the evening I had curry again, just this time what I did was bulk it up with chickpeas, seasonal vegetables and sweet potato. It was amazing and the second round was enough to feed another four people.
Thankfully, by this time my teenage son was home from school and had no issue helping me finish and then he complained that it was all gone!
I am thinking I need another job to fund his huge appetite!!!
But without further introduction this is my go to Slimming World go to chicken curry recipe in the slow cooker. Simply use this as your base and then add your favourite vegetables or even add some rice or fries. The choice is yours!

- Peel and dice the onion and place it in the bottom of the slow cooker.
- Dice the chicken breasts and add it too.
- Add the garlic and all the seasonings along with the yoghurt and cheese.
- Using your hands mix everything thoroughly so that the seasoning and yoghurt coats the chicken and onion well.
- Place the lid on and set it to high and cook for 4 hours.
- After 4 hours stir and serve with white rice.
I used fat free Greek Yoghurt in mine but you could use Fromage Frais instead. It just depends on what you have in your fridge. You can also swap the chicken for pork or for fish as either is nice for the base of the curry.
If you want the curry more spicy, add a teaspoon of chilli powder to the spice blend.
Introducing The WellGood Indian Gold Turmeric
I love turmeric and have used it for years. I loved the way it coloured your food and would experiment with it beyond Indian cooking. I also loved the flavour it gave to food and would often place it in my spicy steak sauces. Yes really!
But it is not readily available here in Portugal so it can sometimes me a stretch to find some. But the turmeric that I did use would hardly be healthy. It would be more a case of being cheap and cheerful rather than being something special.
But that was until I discovered WellGood and their turmeric. They have a tagline that sums them up a treat “in nature we trust”. As unlike many dried herb and spice produce everything is 100% natural without it carrying a high price tag.

Our verdict – I have never really got excited about turmeric before. It has always been this boring thing that you would add to a curry or to give some colour to a rice dish. Nothing that I couldn’t do with food colouring. But then you go organic and try out this natural turmeric and then you never look back again.
I am all for natural foods, natural seasonings and natural spice. By having this in my chicken curry I will feel less guilty and feel like I am doing something really good for the planet.
Its best feature…If you want to eat wholesome food but miss your trips to the Indian takeaway then this is perfect. You add this to a homemade chicken curry and then cook it in the slow cooker. You then serve it up with some cauliflower pilau rice and you have a food heaven experience.
Overall – I’m impressed. I mean I am REALLY impressed. It comes in a fantastic 250g pack. You can easily reseal it for transfer it into your spice jar. It can also be ordered online and then when you are low on supply, simply order some more. We are certainly addicts to the organic side of turmeric and will be buying it on a regular basis. Especially in the summer when we want some tandorri chicken on the barbeque.
Or if you are into the frugal way of life (like us) you’ll be surprised by how little you will need to complete your dish.
