Life certainly has changed over the past few weeks. People are learning how to cook, and families are having a lot more quality time together! Our family has been trying new recipes and the kids are getting braver about trying new foods.
This curry chicken dinner has a sweet flavor that will please even the pickiest palate. The star of this recipe is Foster Farms Air Chilled Chicken. If you are new to air chilling, it is a method of cooling the chicken during processing.
It makes your chicken taste better because the chicken doesn't absorb a lot of water like in water chilling. Even better, your chicken cooks faster if it has been air chilled!
Even though it feels like we have so much time on our hands lately, our days have been surprisingly busy. I am using my slow cooker a few times a week. Slow cooking is a great way to cook air chilled chicken! Your dinner will be full of moist flavorful chicken!
I love serving chicken legs because they are less expensive and you can feed a hungry family. If you are looking for more budget ideas, I have lots of living gluten free on a budget tips.
Are you ready to give this recipe a try? All you need is a few simple ingredients, and the vegetables you have on-hand. I had a lot of carrots and potatoes so I used those. Other vegetables you could use include winter squash, green beans, onions, and zucchini.
You will love that this recipe is allergy-friendly. It is gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, and free of the Top 8 Allergens.
Step 1: Grab your slow cooker and plug it in.

What cuts of chicken are best to cook in a slow cooker?
You can use any cut of chicken, but I find bone-in air-chilled chicken works well. My kids LOVE drumsticks so we used those in this recipe. Feel free to use chicken breasts, thighs, and chicken quarters.
