Easy Slow Cooker Chicken and Lentil Tandoori Curry

Categories Food

This is my absolute favourite chicken curry recipe. The kids love it, and it is super easy to make. I literally just bung everything in the Crockpot, give it a stir and start cooking. There is no need for any frying beforehand.

The chicken comes out deliciously succulent and infused with the curry flavours.

If you are not ready to eat your delicious meal at the end of the cooking time make sure you keep it warm safely.

Serve with basmati rice or naan bread.

This recipe is gluten-free if you use gluten-free stock.

Here’s an idea, how about using the chicken leg instead? it’s much cheaper than the breast.
