Easy Creamy Chicken Curry

A very versatile curry, made with ease, yet full of flavour.

Add more curry for extra bang!

1Place chopped chicken in SC. Crumble stock cube over chicken, then sprinkle with chicken noodle soup mix and curry powder.

So yummy 🀀
Definitely making again

Very yummy dish. I used 600grams diced chicken thigh (what I had in the freezer.). Accidently used β€˜Creamy Chicken Soup’ instead of β€˜Condensed Cream of Chicken’. No issue – tasted delish. Hubby and 2 year old toddler happy. Followed recipe but fried the chicken and some onion first. Cooked in low for 5.5 hours in my Sunbeam 5L Secret Chef SC

Delicious! Super easy, followed recipe exactly. Used 2T of curry powder & will increase to 2.5T next time.

Made this today is a hit in our house – I left out the coconut cream and used lactose cream instead. Used 2 1/2 tsp curry.
Delicious!! Definitely will make this again 😊

Delicious! I swapped out the coconut milk and cooking cream combo for a tin of carnation light and creamy and added it at the start. Worked out perfectly. Only added 2 tablespoons of curry powder and was very mild but still flavoursome. Added 2 cups of frozen mixed veggies 1 hour before serving. Served with mashed potatoes.

Hubby and I absolutely loved it. Omitted the coconut milk and added extra cream. Added mixed veg towards the end. It’s going to be a regular. Beautiful comfort food! πŸ˜‹

Almost never comment but this one is a winner. Absolutely delicious and perfect for a cold Winter night.

Yum yum yum yum yum, don’t usually make curries as most are too hot for me but this was mild enough for me, I did increase the curry powder second time I made it, easy and loved I could pack it with all the vege I liked.

I’ve made this recipe twice and loved it! So easy to make and yummy. Easily freezes, which makes it a good option for work lunches. I put in a bag of frozen veggies in the last hour which worked well.

Loved this recipe. So easy. Didnt see “diced chiken” πŸ˜‰ used whole skinless thighs, still turned out great.


March 12, 2022

This is the best! I have made it 3 times now and everyone loves it! It’s so easy and tasty, I just added 2 to 3 tablespoons of fruit chutney. I have served it with creamy mashed potatoes and with rice, either one compliments this dish beautifully!

I do bulk slow cooker meals for time safer and also to help keep good meal proportions for weight loss . Not a curry fan normally but OMG this was just amazing 😍. I always use chicken thighs when doing chicken recipes and this didn’t dissapoint . Thank you .

Best SC meal I have done by far.. I doubled the recipe and used snow peas, carrot and capsicum.. my family loved it and have requested to have it more often, my partner pretty much ate the whole lot ❀❀

Bert I would just make up the extra with more cooking cream myself πŸ™‚

This is the best curry chicken i have ever made, this is the only way i make it now 🀀


November 24, 2021

I made this meal on Saturday and hands down was the best curried chicken I’ve ever had


November 21, 2021

Yum! Definitely having this again

I cooked this for my family the other night. It was a massive hit, even my 2 year old loved it. Will definitely be making this again


October 18, 2021

This is great and easy to make. My family loves it

I expect you could Mary-Ann πŸ™‚ It would just be less creamy and may need a little thickening at the end?

Mary-Ann De Hoon

October 16, 2021

Could you omit the cream and just use a 400ml can of coconut cream?

If using a regular cream instead of cooking cream, I add 1-2 tsp cornflour to the cream first before hand, it helps prevent splitting (more info HERE)

Good morning everyone. Just wondering if you think this would work with thickened cream instead of cooking cream?,and would I still add the coconut milk?Thank you and have a nice day.πŸ™‚

Love this dish. Flavours were amazing. Used 2 tablespoons of curry as I’m normally not one to like curries. That has not changed, I’m sold, as long as it’s not too hot.


January 16, 2021

Made this and left it to cool and made pies in my pie maker.
Tried again later making the pies in the oven.
Even better πŸ™‚
Best chicken curry pies I’ve had to date.


November 27, 2020

Absolutely delicious.
My kids favourite slow cooker recipe. I just add a bag of frozen peas, carrots and corn towards the end.

This is an absolutely amazing and delicious recipe. Add a heap of veggies and served it with rice and it was an absolute hit. Will be making it all the time


July 24, 2020

Yum, Yum, Yum. I had 1.5 kg of thigh fillets so used a full tin of coconut milk and added garlic and carrots, capsicum and zucchini. Served with rice and it was delicious. Thank you very much for a simple, easy yummy meal. πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜

Big hit with my family, even used left overs with cream cheese on toast for breaky. Thank you so much!


February 5, 2020

We all love this one but I use beef instead!! So yummy πŸ˜‹

If you do replace the liquids up to that same volume. You could use evap milk etc?


February 2, 2020

Could you leave the coconut milk out ?

This is a wonderful, tasty and easy curry. You can add as much or as little of the curry to suit your taste, I use 2 tablespoons. The leftovers freeze really well, I turn those into curry puffs, by putting them into puff pastry.

Sharon Robinson

This was absolutely delicious. Made to recipe, except I used chunks of breast. I also added some capsicum. I served it with creamy mash which was delish with it, but I’m going to try it with some pasta added next time instead – it was really creamy so I think there’ll be enough liquid.

Natasha Kidman

Oh wow – Easy creamy chicken curry (with rice) was absolutely delicious!!! I added garlic to ours! Hit with everyone, no complaints with hubby and 4 kids , and plenty of leftovers for 2 lunches !!


April 22, 2019

I added 2 teaspoon fruit chutney to make it a sweet curry.. so delish


November 22, 2018

My first curry in a slow cooker…and it will not be the last. What a great recipe. I read somewhere that there was too much sauce…not in this household….we love sopping it up with bread. Husband has been known to pour more over a slice of buttered bread πŸ™‚

I used chicken drumsticks and some chicken wings that had to be used and will stick with them next time. I also used about 4T of Herbies whole seed curry mix….had just the right amount of sing. A keeper…

The chicken curry was a family winner. nice and easy.

11 years old grandson cooked this last night. It was delicious if a tad mild for me. I will definitely be making again for grandchildren.


May 27, 2018

This was an absolute hit in my house, my teenage son loved it.
I added potato near the beginning of the cooking time and cooked for around 3.5 hours on high as it was later in the afternoon.
I also cooked broccoli and carrot til tender and added to the slow cooker for the last 15 minutes. Served on sweet potato mash..yummy!

Debbie B

May 17, 2018

The whole family really enjoyed this dish! Will definitely be making it again.
I also added some frozen veg in the last hour and served with rice!


May 12, 2018

If we are short on time could you do 3 hours on high?


May 11, 2018

I have tried quite a few recipes from this page now and it’s by far my favorite! Even my fussy husband enjoyed it! Thank you.. delicious!

New recipe kids need to try it afew times.

Best curry recipe I have cooked. So creamy and full of flavour. I used chicken breast so I cut the cooking time back to 4 hours and it was perfect.
Will be trying this one using sausages next. YUM 😍


April 29, 2018

I used coconut cream instead of cooking cream and it tasted just like the packet stuff. Better even!

Kate Williamson

April 15, 2018

We have this a lot. A definite favourite. So creamy and delicious! We always use cubed chicken breast.


April 11, 2018

I made this the other night – used chicken breast instead of thighs (justroughly cubed) and it was delicious!


March 21, 2018

Fantastical recipe and very easy – good for weeknights.

I throw in some cubed, cooked potato with the mixed veges to help bulk it out (plus the flatmate likes chicken and potato curry).

While it won’t be as creamy that could work πŸ™‚


March 6, 2018

Don’t have cooking cream on hand, chasing an alternative please… Evaporated milk??

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

February 13, 2018

I wanted to try this after it had so many great reviews … they weren’t wrong!
Easy to cook, smelled great cooking and tasted fantastic!
I was a little heavy handed on the curry for our kids (with almost 3T) but it was perfect for the grown ups – yum yum!
Next time I’d add raw pasta in the last 45 mins or so which would absorb the sauce a little but produce a creamy curry chicken pasta for a complete meal.
I’d definitely cook this one again πŸ™‚
Thanks Sharon

Really tasty meal. I had a larger tin of coconut milk so used all of it rather than waste it, so I added another teaspoon of cornflour to ensure it thickened well. Nice dish!


August 5, 2017

Delish! We served with rice and pappadums.


July 6, 2017

The whole family loved this one. It’s a winner and so easy. I didn’t have the chicken soup so just added a bit more chick stock.


June 17, 2017

Not a fan of this one. Way too much liquid and didn’t thicken. Didn’t find it creamy as others did and I followed the recipe exactly. The chicken was lovely and tender but the flavour wasn’t a hit with us. I don’t like that it was just curry powder. Won’t be making again.


May 16, 2017

Love love love ❀️


April 20, 2017

Made this for me and my husband and it’s delicious! I added 4 tbsp curry powder as my husband likes it spicy but I might even add a bit more next time. Lovely and creamy and really tasty.

Very nice meal. Wasn’t sure on how much curry to add but next time will add the full amount.
A keeper thank you.

OMG, this was so delicious. I could have gone back and eaten more and more. The chicken was so tender and juicy, the sauce was so full of flavor, and it was so easy to make. Definitely going to become a family favorite. All of the family absolutely loved it. Thanks, Sharon, for the recipe.


March 18, 2017

Absolutely love this easy creamy chicken curry!!! The thing I love about this too is just throwing everything in2 your sc 😁 saves washing up πŸ˜‰ πŸ‘ on my faves list 😊

So simple to prepare and absolutely delicious. Served ours with creamy mashed potatoes which was a perfect accompaniment to this creamy curry. Housemate loved it too.

This was superb! I altered slightly to fit what was on hand/me not reading the recipe properly (e.g. I dumped a whole 410gr tin of coconut milk in and THEN read it should be less, so omitted the cooking cream!) plus I didn’t have a stock cube so left that out. But it was a lovely flavorsome curry that wasn’t in the least bit spicy. Thanks, Sharon! It’s a winner πŸ˜€

This was quite good, some bread and butter to dip in made it perfect

Such a tasty and easy recipe to prep. All prepped in less than 10 mins and cooked on low for 6 hrs. The prep time of 10hrs 40mins is not correct. Must have been a slide bar error lol. Enjoy with rice, creamy mash or pasta!
