Slowcooker Chicken Curry with Sweet Potato

Chicken Curry with Sweet potatoIt’ that time of year again. It’s dark outside all the time (at least when I’m home), there’s a chill in the air and bits of snow have fallen. All we really want to do is cuddle up in blankets and binge watch Scandal (which I just started this fall, so I have lots of content to catch up on). But since I do have some adult responsibilities and need to feed my kids a nourishing meal, I can’t completely go into hibernation. This is where the slow cooker comes in – throw everything into the pot in the morning, head to work and come home to the beautiful scent of curried, melt in your mouth chicken!Chicken Curry with Sweet potato
