I’ve had this recipe pinned for a really long time and finally decided to make it. It’s really quick and easy, and doesn’t cost much at all.

I know this photo is pitiful, but I couldn’t get the lighting right. My son and I were very hungry so I said the heck with it. Trust me, it was so so so much better than the photo makes it look!

In A Hurry Chicken Curry
16 ounce package frozen stew vegetables
4 large chicken thighs, skin removed (1 1/2 to 1 3/4 pounds)
Salt and ground black pepper
1 10 3/4 ounce can condensed cream of potato soup
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 tablespoon snipped fresh cilantro

Place frozen stew vegetables in a 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker.
Top with chicken
Sprinkle with salt and pepper
In a small bowl, stir together soup and curry powder
Pour soup mixture over all.
Cover; cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or on high for 3 to 3 1/2 hours
Remove chicken from bones and, if desired, break into large pieces.
Sprinkle with cilantro.

I left out the cilantro, but may use it when I make it the next time since it’s only a tablespoon. Also, I used boneless, skinless thighs instead of bone-in. The recipe says it makes 6 servings, but we must have used bigger bowls because my son ate 2 bowl fulls and I ate one and it was gone. I plan on doubling the recipe next time because we both loved it. If there had been any left, we would have eaten more the next day.

Also, I don’t know which stores are in your area, but I looked at Publix and Wal-Mart for a bag of frozen stew vegetables but neither store sold it.  I finally found it at Winn-Dixie.

  1. I love curries! Vicki, this looks and sounds very good. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. I too love curries. I wonder if Wegman’s has the veggies, I’ll have to look. Thanks for the heads-up on doubling the recipe.

  3. YUM!!! I love curry!

  4. Taking food photos is so hard especially when you want to eat the food! This sounds so easy and delicious!

  5. Must try this recipe. I do love curries and this one sounds so easy!! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Was it super hot, as in spicy? I such a baby about spicy foods! I can always use a recipe that’s quick to get on the table & your son eating 2 bowls is a great testament to its good taste!

  7. I LOVE curry, but rarely make it because it takes so long. Am pinning this recipe and definitely want to give it a try.

  8. This would be an easy, quick and flavorful dinner on a busy week night!

  9. This sounds delicious and definitely quick! I think I’ll leave out the cilantro as well. The flavor just seems to take over everything for me but then I’m not especially fond of it.

  10. My daughters make fun of me for my “food photography” efforts! I let my breakfast eggs cool off a little too much while I fussed around taking a picture, but just ended up taking a quick shot too because who wants cold food, right?

  11. Curry in a Hurry – fabulous name for a dish! Cheers from Carole’s Chatter!

  12. Food photography is very technical. It sounds delicious.

  13. Oh how many times have I made a recipe thinking it will be double what it actually makes! I often wonder if other people eat like rabbits?? Sounds really delicious–I’m intimidated by chicken curry but my husband loves it and I’ve vowed to try it one day. One day.

    Thanks for joining Pin it and Do it! 🙂

  14. Mmm, this sounds good!

  15. Yummmeee! Saw this on face book! Definitely have 2
    try!! Thanks!!
