Hi Katrina

No that’s far too long to try to change a 2.5hr to an 8hr recipe
Even on low it would only take 4hrs at most
It wouldn’t be nice after 8hrs so best to save this one for another day 🙂

Would I be able to just add all the ingredients in at once and cook 8hrs on low while I’m at work?

This was delicious! Hubby and I loved it anyway (my 2 little ones wouldn’t touch it but suspect they would have enjoyed it had they actually tried it!) I used chicken breast, upped the quantity of curry paste to suit our taste and added 2 tins of mango (which I pureed with the juice too- so yum!)
I also added half a small jar of mango chutney.
I pre-prepared the curry to have later in the week so I didn’t add the coconut cream until the night we had it for tea (I re-heated on the stove top and then added the coconut cream). Will definitely be back on my weekly meal plan soon!

luverly recipe, we use AYAM curry powder as it gives a nice flavour, may need to thicken with some cornflour

This is a great, easy, vibrant recipe.

I cooked it on low for 8 hours as I was working. I added a whole 114g tin of maesri red curry paste and found it much hotter than I was expecting, but I love it spicy so it was a welcome surprise.

This is delicious and I have made it several time with real mangoes. I have not tried with tinned ones.

Made this tonight. Was full of flavour! Just used full thigh pieces instead of cutting up, and next time will use an extra table spoon of chilli paste as we like meals pretty hot and this was quite mild. Very easy meal to make while running after a 1 year old. Ty!

Devine!!! And so easy to make with only 5 ingredients.

If using the tin mangoes just the mangoes not the juice 🙂

Do we add the juice from the canned mangoes or just mangoes. Thank you

This is fantastic! Huge hit in our house!

Cooking time is the same but breast will be a little drier than thighs 🙂

How long do you cook the breast for? same as thighs? or do they dry out?

Beautiful and easy dish to make. I found I had to cook this a bit longer just to ensure the chicken was properly cooked.

Amazing second time making this dish and once again turned out great:) I cooked mine for 1 hour 30 mins on high then added the mangos for 30-40 mins turned out great.

Thank you Jenny for this delicious recipe.
Very easy to make. I also added more curry paste because we like a bit more spice.


March 30, 2016

Simple and delicious. I went a little heavier on the curry paste, but that’s to my taste. Lovely, easy meal.

Thanks for sharing…..delicious and so easy to make.

Made this last night and absolutely loved it. Substituted capsicum for a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables .

Will definitely make again

Enjoyed by my whole family … mild enough for even my 2yr old 🙂
I just added a little cornflour in the last 15mins to thicken up the sauce nicely.
And just 5 ingredients made it so easy!
Thanks Jenny for a great recipe that I’ll be sure to cook again 🙂

Just Divine!! Had enough to freeze for 2 meals to take to work. Lovely served with Jasmine rice. Could do perhaps with little more red curry paste. I left lid off for a while after it was cooked on high as there was plenty of juice. Most beautiful meal. Especially loved the fact time cooking was considerably shorter…..A must to try…Enjoy 🙂
