Let’s just say I do a lot of cooking in the slow cooker. This slow cooker red Thai chicken curry is an awesome recipe. I love adding this recipe into our dinner rotation because it helps us not get burnt out on crockpot meals. It is a “different” recipe for when you find yourself getting into a recipe rut.

I love using chicken thighs when cooking in my slow cooker. They tend to not dry out as much as other cuts of chicken and are really flavorful. This red Thai chicken curry recipe calls for an entire jar of red Thai curry paste but it is needed. I was a little hesitant to add it all but I quickly realized the dish needed it.

This curry goes perfectly over a bowl of fluffy white rice. So skip the takeout and try out this delicious Thai recipe.
