Crockpot Orange Curried Chicken

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (6 Reviews)


I adapted Orange Curried Chicken to cook in the crockpot. This delicious recipe, using orange juice, bell peppers, onion, and curry powder, is a fabulous dish for company.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 6 hours

Total Time: 6 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: Serves 4-6


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. curry powder
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • Hot cooked rice
  • Chutney
  • More curry powder
  • Cashew pieces


In 3-4 quart crockpot, combine onion, peppers, garlic, orange juice, water, salt, and curry powder and mix well. Top with chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Remove chicken and cut into strips. Return to crockpot; cook covered on low for 2-3 hours longer until chicken is thoroughly cooked.

In small bowl, combine whipping cream and cornstarch and blend with wire whisk. Stir into crockpot, turn heat to high, and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring once, until sauce thickens. Serve over hot cooked rice with chutney, more curry powder, and condiments.

If you have a new, hotter cooking crockpot, cook on low for 5-6 hours. Check the chicken at 4-1/2 hours to see if it is thoroughly cooked.

I doubled this recipe for my family of six, but didn't double the onions or peppers, as half my family doesn't care for them. Instead, I added 5 potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces. And rather than doubling the orange juice, I added a cup of pineapple juice. And instead of whipping cream, I used canned coconut milk for a more authentic curry flavor. All in all, it was a success and I will make it again, perhaps playing around with more curry and different veggies like carrots. Served it with Basmati Rice and it warmed our evening right up.
