A delicious, easy, curry chicken dish cooked entirely in a slow cooker. It’s even better one or two days later, as leftovers. Your family will love it! Serve curry chicken over rice, with naan bread and a salad and you have a wonderful meal (I serve it over brown rice).

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 1 packet dry onion soup mix (such as Knorr® French Onion Soup Mix)
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 3 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves -- trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Set the slow cooker to the High setting.
  2. 2 Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion until browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Set the onion aside.
  3. 3 In a large bowl, stir together cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, coconut milk, dry soup mix, curry powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Place the chicken into the bottom of the slow cooker, and pour the mixture over the chicken. Stir in onion, peas and mushrooms.
  4. 4 Cook on High setting for 1 1/2 hours, then reduce heat to Low and cook an additional 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

  1. I love curry and this turned out very good. My guests couldn't believe how it was made. 1/2 t of cayenne was enough for us. Simple and direct. Don't like reviewers who don't try the original recipe 1st...

  4. I made this and didn't rate it since I changed it SO MUCH but I saw another reviewer with questions and thought I'd answer them. I don't use any cream of anything soups or soup mixes - too much processed food gives me migraines - so I did it all from scratch. I melted a - Read more ...
  5. I'm Keon (the creator of this recipe). Glad to see so many people enjoying it! I'm from Texas and like SPICY dishes, so you may want to tone down the cayenne if you don't like spicy as much as I do. Also, to reduce the sodium, you can use the low sodium soups. Enjoy!
  6. This is excellent if you like curry, but do NOT add 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper. We only added 1 tsp and it was still too hot and we eat very hot things all the time. We'll use 1/2 tsp next time, you can always add more.
  7. I have to admit, when I mixed the sauce for this dish together, I was pretty skeptical. Two cans of condensed soup and a packet of onion soup mix is a lot of processed food, and mixing it with coconut milk just seemed . . . odd. Odd and a little wrong. But I'm always - Read more ...
  8. This recipe was amazing! I have never tried to cook curry at home before so I will also add that the recipe is very easy to make. The only changes that I made were doubling the recipe and using half of the required cayenne pepper. Even with half it was still very spicy but not - Read more ...
  9. This was a delicious recipe. I do not like my curry fire-hot so I only used 1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper instead of the recommended 2 tsps. Next time I will start with 1/4 tsp. I doubled the peas. It was easy to make and will become a favorite in our home. Thank you Keon!
