Slow Cooker Curry Chicken (REPOST)

I’ve made it no secret that I love a good crock pot/slow cooker. In fact it’s my favorite kitchen appliance. You just set it and forget it. No muss. No fuss. So it should come as no surprise that I am reposting for your delight, this A+mazing Slow Cooked Curry Chicken Recipe that I cooked up last summer. Perfect for this time of year when the weather outside is frightful and the hustle and bustle of the week’s grind makes cooking seem more of a chore than a delight. Get into this recipe for the second time and tell me that it isn’t the best thing since… well since my last slow cooker recipe 🙂
