  • 2.5 lbs. boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
  •  1 medium onion, chopped
  •  1 15-oz can coconut milk
  • 1 15-oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1 T. tomato paste
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 T. fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 1/2 t. garam masala
  • 1 1/2 t. curry powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  •  1 T. cornstarch
  • cilantro, to garnish (optional)


  1. Place chopped chicken and chopped onion into slow cooker.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients except for cilantro and add to slow cooker.
  3. Cook on low for about 8 hours.
  4. Serve in bowls. Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.

Serve with brown rice or riced cauliflower and a colorful vegetable for an easy weeknight, real-food meal. You may even have a few bonus leftover servings for lunches. Or think about doubling the recipe if your slow cooker is large enough (a 6-quart slow cooker). It freezes well for another week if you don’t like having the same thing two times in a row.
