This Indian-flavored spicy chicken curry is not just an aromatic and flavorful dish, it is also paleo, whole30 compliant, and super easy to make. Sit back and let your slow cooker create a delicious curry.
I love Indian food. A good curry – I’ll take it. Curry in particular is a favorite of mine. Curry in general is not prettiest to look at, especially when it’s made in the slow cooker but they have so much flavor! Heck the aroma that will fill your kitchen alone is worth making this dish for. To be honest, I can’t believe I haven’t posted a chicken curry recipe until now.
It took me a couple of rounds to get this recipe right but it’s finally at a place where I feel comfortable posting it. I used white sweet potatoes but you can use your preferred potato. I also used canned whole roma tomatoes (just the tomatoes, not their juices) but you can use fresh roma tomatoes as well. No, you do not have to peel the skin off them first.
To keep this both whole30 and paleo, I substituted diced zucchini instead of peas. If you’re not sticking to one of these diets then you can absolutely use frozen or canned peas. If you do, add them in with the rest of the ingredients at the beginning of cook-time.Print
