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.
