Spinach and Chicken Slow Cooker Curry

Another day and another successful attempt to sneak vegetables into my diet, this time with my Spinach and Chicken Slow Cooker Curry !

This time my inspiration came once again in the form of the wonderful Slow Cooked Challenge, hosted by the lovely BakingQueen74 and FarmersgirlKitchen.

As I said last time I love a theme and they did not disappoint this month either as they threw out the challenge of Spring Ingredients. Now I must admit I am rubbish at knowing what’s in season but thankfully in this day and age I have the internet to tell me, phew!

I was also feeling all over excited following, not only the success of my sweet potato fries, but also now my courgette spaghetti. In fact I was considering taking up Yoga and exercising to go along with my new healthy diet, but I opted for an extra slice of cake instead (got to keep the world in balance!)

Anyway I saw that in season right now is spinach! Oddly Jonathan and I love spinach and it’s often my go to bit of greenary as I like it wilted as well as fresh and crunchy, so I decided to run with it and created my Spinach and Chicken Slow Cooker Curry. Pop it on in the morning and come home to a lovely warming dinner. It’s ridiculously simply to prepare and I’ve made it mild for even little mouths. Feel free to add chilli if you like your curry with a kick!
Note: One of my lovely friends, Kirsty has now made this twice! Her top tip for those of you that like vegetables (so most of you I’d suspect) is as well as the chilli add a red pepper.
