Slow Cooker Chicken Korma

Chicken Korma is a fragrant Indian dish, a type of curry. I’ve adapted this chicken korma recipe to be healthy and low in fat. It’s also adapted for the slow cooker, which is one of my favorite types of meals on a busy day. It’s such an easy dish to prepare. Place all the ingredients in the slow cooker, set the timer and voila. Welcome home to a wonderful smelling kitchen.


If you’re in the mood for some truly tasty international cuisine, chicken korma is an amazing Indian dish. The marriage of spices is incredible, and the farthest thing from bland. If you don’t like things too spicy, then omit the crushed red pepper, but it definitely gives the dish a kick.

The flavor of a typical korma is based on a mixture of spices, including ground coriander and cumin. You’ll find different recipes out there for chicken korma, but I’ve made this one especially for the slow cooker, and I’ve made it more nutritious by adding sweet potatoes and butternut squash.

  1. This looks great and I love that I can pop it in the cooker and forget it. I will admit to a bit of kitchen overload after Christmas. :)

  2. I love this recipe, I’m a sucker for all Indian food. I’ve been looking for a new crockpot recipe, this going on the weekday menu. Thank you for sharing.
