Slow Cooker Curry Chicken with Cauliflower and Carrots

Tender chicken in a creamy curry sauce – made easy your in your slow cooker!

Are you constantly trying to figure out how to get more veggies onto your children’s plates? Maybe you are one of those amazing mothers whose children love vegetables in any form. But my kids are always trying to avoid veggies. That’s one thing I love about this dish. It has cauliflower and carrots, but they’re so well chamoflaged by the sauce, that my kids don’t even notice them. Yay! More veggies for my kids!

This chicken goes great over brown rice, cauliflower rice, or quinoa.

Want to get even more veggies on your kids’ plates? Try serving this with roasted brussel sprouts, crispy garlic broccoli or sauteed mushrooms.

This recipe calls for garam masala. If you don’t have this seasoning on hand, you can also make it from scratch.
