Slow Cooker Chicken & Sweet Potato Korma

Slow Cooker Chicken and Sweet Potato Korma
I'm back (promise this time!) after a rather longer than intended blogging break. A break that was meant to last a week to coincide with the kids half term, somehow turned into a month (ooops). If there is such a thing as Bloggers Burn Out, I definitely had it. Back raring to go now though!

I'm kicking off my return to all things blogging with this yummy and super easy Slow Cooker Chicken & Sweet Potato Curry. This recipe is perfect for fussy veggie hating little ones as the sweet potato cubes almost melt into the korma sauce, creating a lovely thick, tasty and nutritious curry, with hardly any visible signs of sweet potato (you can mash up the last little bits if any remain...can you tell I have a fussy one to contend with myself!?).

I cheat and use a good quality korma curry paste in this, but if you have the time and inclination feel free to make your own.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Sweet Potato Korma


  1. Try adding butternut squash cubes instead or as well as the sweet potato.
  2. A handful of frozen peas chucked in for the last hour of cooking adds some extra goodness and colour to the korma.
  3. If you like your curry a bit hotter and your kids can handle it, add 1 chopped red chilli to the slow cooker pot.
  4. Serve the curry with basmati rice, naan breads and lots of mango chutney.
  5. Any leftovers can be frozen, but it will happily keep in the fridge for a couple of days.

  1. Mmm your slow cooker curry really looks delicious! Those chunks of sweet potato just melt away in the slow cooker don't they, perfect to hide for fussy kids (mine turn their noses up at veg they don't recognise!)! Thar sauce with a naan dipped in would be perfection for me.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCED BEEF COBBLERUp the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freez…
