Slow Cooker Chinese Chicken Curry

Slow Cooker Chinese Chicken Curry

This Slow Cooker Chinese Chicken Curry was utterly delicious. It's not too hot, so the kids could to enjoy it and I could leave it going in the slow cooker all afternoon, filling my house with a yummy smell. We were hungry by tea time that's for sure. I served it with some basmati rice and poppadoms.
