What do you get if you combine my two most popular recipes (Slow Cooker Beef Noodles and Slow Cooker Chicken Curry)? My brand new Slow Cooker Chicken Noodles with Curry Sauce! I think you’ll love it.

Curry Sauce and Chicken Noodles in the Slow Cooker

It’s here – my FINAL recipe in my Summer Slow Cooker Series! For this one I decided to combine my two most loved slow cooker recipes to create a delicious hybrid of flavour and convenience.

This Chicken Noodles with Curry Sauce recipe is a wonderful marriage of my Slow Cooker Beef Noodles and Slow Cooker Chicken Curry dishes… I thought, what better way to celebrate the closing of my series than with a meeting of the two recipes that you all enjoy to make the most?!

Honestly, it works so well and I think you’re going to love this one too. It has all the flavour and texture of the two dinners, with the noodles being able to soak up that wonderful curry sauce.

As always, I am keeping it simple (I won’t use the word ‘cheat’ but you know that’s what I am saying) by allowing everything to be thrown in the slow cooker for ultimate ease. No browning necessary, just a few extras added in about 30 minutes before the end.

This is #12 of #12 in my Summer Slow Cooker Series. I hope you’ve enjoyed making these meals as much as I’ve loved creating them. Some days, slow cookers are a total saviour, and now we know they’re for all year, not just for winter! You’ll find the rest of the slow cooker recipes in the series here.

You’ll love this recipe because:

Super easy – just throw it all in

 FAQs about this Slow Cooker Chicken Noodles with Curry Sauce Recipe

Is this a healthy recipe?

Yes, this recipe is nutritious and healthy. What’s best is it manages to be creamy with lots of flavour thanks to the coconut milk and spices, without heaps of added fat that can come with creamy sauces.

Is this a spicy dish?

It has a little kick to it but you can adjust the spiciness by reducing or omitting the chilli. It’s not a very hot dish to begin with, but if you’re feeding kids with a low spice tolerance, it’s fine to take it out.

What if I have too much sauce?

There is usually sauce left in the slow cooker once the chicken is cooked and you haven’t yet put in the noodles. The noodles may soak up the sauce, but some brands of noodles may not. If it’s a little runny, you can thicken the sauce by adding 1 tbsp of cornflour mixed with 2 tbsp water and stir through the cooked dish.

Should I chop the chicken first?

No need! Just like in the chicken curry recipe, put all the ingredients in and allow to cook. You can pull the chicken apart with two forks once it’s cooked and before your noodles go in. You’ll be left with delicious chunks of shredded chicken, which usually helps to soak up the sauce a little.

Can I prepare this the night before?

Sometimes when I know I’ve got an early start or busy day, I do myself a massive favour and get all the ingredients in the slow cooker pan the night before. Just make sure there’s enough room for the pan in the fridge, then take it out and switch on in the morning. You can also this this WiFi plug to switch it on during the day if you’d prefer.

Can you recommend a slow cooker?

I always recommend my trusty Morphy Richards Sear & Stew Slow Cooker because it’s so light and can go on the hob (for when I can be bothered to brown meat), and for induction hobs I’d suggest the Lakeland Digital 6.5l Slow Cooker.

Can I reheat any leftovers?

Yes! Just refresh with a splash of water or an ice cube when you’re reheating to stop it from drying out.

      I’ve made this recipe a few times and absolutely love it. So easy and so tasty. I love that I only really need to buy the chicken and green beans and everything else is a staple in my house! My little one who is dairy free is also a fan which is always a bonus!

  2. 5 stars
    Thank you so much for sharing this simple and easy to follow recipe. The only change I made was to swap the green beans for mushrooms and it turned out lovely. Even my daughter who is normally not a massive fab of noodles cleared her plate. This dish will definitly be being made regularly now.

    I could make this every day & my family would be happy they love it so much! Excellent recipe Sarah (as always!) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This was so easy to make and we preferred it to cooking noodles in the wok. My two year old loved it and asked for seconds. It had just the right amount of spice. I will make again but maybe try different vegetables in for a change.
