This chicken slow-cooker recipe delivers a world of flavors, with curry playing off of jalapenos, raisins, shredded coconut and sweet peppers.


  • 1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 red sweet pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow sweet pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 fresh jalapeno chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Hot cooked rice
  • 3/4 cup lightly salted cashews, coarsely chopped


  1. In 3-1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker combine chicken, peppers, onion, jalapeno, garlic, broth, raisins, coconut, curry powder, salt, cinnamon, and cayenne. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 8-1/2 to 9 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 4-1/2 hours. In small bowl stir coconut milk and cornstarch until smooth. Stir into chicken mixture. If cooking on low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Cover; cook 15 to 20 minutes more or until slightly thickened. Serve over rice. Sprinkle with nuts. Makes 4 servings.


  • For easy cleanup: Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your chicken is finished cooking, spoon it out of your slow cooker. Once the food is out of your slow cooker liner, simply dispose of the liner. Note: Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
