Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken is a meal that practically makes itself! Blend with exotic flavors, this savory dish is an easy achiever. The coconut gives the curry a really smooth, silky texture and mixes really well with all the herbs and spices the chicken cooks in. It’s not too spicy, but has tons of flavor! The sweetness from the coconut and the earthy tones from the curry balance each other perfectly. But you have to marinate it well. Curry is a spice. Just like cumin in Mexican dishes or garlic in Italian dishes, curry is the salt and pepper of Indian food. And it’s crazy-amazingly-delicious. It has a fragrant spice blend and a good dose of aromatics such as garlic, this dish sings with flavor. It’s mellowed out with rich coconut milk and served over steamed rice; comfort food at its finest.
