This Slow Cooker Chinese Chicken Curry was really 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.

HOW TO MAKE SLOW COOKER CHINESE CHICKEN CURRY


Firstly make up 300ml of chicken stock. Make sure it's low salt because you will be adding soy sauce in a minute.

Next, whisk in the soy sauce, fenugreek and curry powder. We use mild curry powder as that's what the kids prefer. If you like things a little spicier then use hot curry powder.





Cut you chicken into large bite size chunks then toss with the cornflour. This will help thicken the sauce as it cooks.
