{Slow Cooker} Garam Masala Chicken Curry

{Slow Cooker} Garam Masala Chicken Curry

If I were to start telling you just how much I love using my slow cooker, this post would never end. I could go on praising about how wonderful slow cookers can be, when you’re in a hurry (somewhat ironic because it’s a “slow” cooker, not fast. But it’s so incredibly easy and quick to assemble all ingredients together in a slow cooker in the morning, and by the time you get home from work or other adventures, your meal is waiting for you.


I love chicken that is cooked in slow cooker. It’s much more tender, and it literally fall apart at one touch. I am also a huge fan of curry. Curry always has been one of my favorites and I’m grateful that I can create a delicious curry meal at home, in my slow cooker!


This recipe is packed with delicious flavors. I love using garam masala. It’s different from the normal curry powder. It’s a great Indian spice you should have in your pantry. The combination of chicken and the potatoes in this delicious garam masala flavored curry is just amazing.


So how about taking out your slow cooker and let it make a delicious meal for you?
