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.
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
✅ Healthy, filling and flavour-packed
✅ Budget-friendly ingredients
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.

Slow Cooker Chicken Noodles with Curry Sauce
- 600 g Chicken thighs Skinless and boneless
- 1 Onion Peeled and chopped
- 3 Cloves of garlic Peeled and crushed
- 2 tsp Fresh ginger Peeled and crushed (or paste)
- 3 tbsp Mild curry powder
- 400 ml Reduced fat coconut milk
- 1/2 tsp Chilli flakes Optional
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 100 g Mango chutney
- 250 g Dry egg noodles
- 300 g Green beans Trimmed and cut in half
- 200 ml Chicken stock
- Put all of the slow cook ingredients into the slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 2.5 hours or LOW for 5.5 hours.
- Add in the noodles, green beans and chicken stock. Give everything a good stir and cook on HIGH for 30 minutes.
Make sure you use MILD curry powder and omit the chilli to your taste. Sauce too runny?
Wait until the chicken is shredded and noodles are added and allow them to absorb the sauce before making a judgement call. If it's still too gloopy, thicken the sauce by adding 1 tbsp of cornflour mixed with 2 tbsp water and stir through the cooked dish.
Really easy and delicious!
Nicola Goyns says
So easy! And so tasty! I only had medium curry powder so used a bit less (around 1.5tbsp) and it was perfect for the kids.
This is an excellent family meal, the fussy daughter loved it, although she did comment that the noodles were over cooked! 😂. Will defo make this again and add to the family’s firm favourites!
Really easy to make and very filling. Could easily stretch to 6 servings. Everyone enjoyed it so will be one I’ll make again
Helen clench says
Wow wow this was amazing. Best slow cooker recipe / meal I’ve ever had. Super easy, quick and totally delicious. Can’t wait to make again x
Loved this , so easy to make
The kids loved it, I didn’t put the chilli in as they aren’t keen in spice but asked for more so a winner dinner in this house
Katie Hall says
This meal was a big hit with all the family, they’ve requested it several times now!! I left out the chilli though and it is perfect for the kids.
Very tasty and easy to make
Just made this for dinner as our hob has broken – it was soooo tasty it will be going on the meal plan for sure ☺️ Next stop slow cooker enchiladas!
Absolutely delicious and super easy! I’m definitely going to make this again!
Wow! This was just delicious! So quick to stick in the slow cooker with the added bonus of coming home after a busy day and not having to cook. Will deffo be making it again. Thank you
Love this and the noodles are so good slow cooked as opposed to being done in a pan of boiling water.
I can’t stop eating this, it is sooo tasty, and easy. I’m cooking for 1 so make 2 portions in a 1.5L cooker. Noodles were a challenge the first time round but, I’ve now discovered round nests of noodles 🤣 I now also make up as a dump bag – excluding the 3 items for the last 30 mins of cooking.
Thank you for such a lovely recipe, looking forward to trying more.
Hi I have chicken breast instead of thigh, how long would I cook in the slow cooker ?
Mandy Bortone says
My boys/men loved this….it’s a winner
Emma A says
Absolutely delicious!! Even the children approved which is a massive winner. Thanks
Tess C says
This recipe has been an absolute winner in our house, especially with my 6 year old. Makes enough for a family dinner and leftover for the adults the next day. So delighted to have found this website and trying the Sweet & Sour chicken recipe tonight.
Delicious!! I added broccoli, baby sweetcorn and button mushrooms for extra veg and only dedicated 20 mins to the noodles… Perfect. My curry powder was a medium one and it was like a katsu curry!
Love, love, love this recipe!! We had the beef curry last week which was also absolutely the best beef curry we’ve had and super easy!! Cannot wait to try more slow cooker recipes 😋😋
Doreen Stubbs says
Found that the onions were very tough but the noddels were great
Chantelle Louise Bright says
Fantastic recipe thank you 😊
Very tasty meal love the recipe can’t wait to cook again. Glad I’ve found your website and will be trying most of your recipes for sure. 😊
Had never cooked noodles in a slow cooker dish. Genuis! Have used rice noodles in ours and added a pack of stir fry veg for variety. Has become a regular meal in our house.
Put a bit less stock in as thought would add more if needed and was perfect. Green beans could’ve done with longer cooking but otherwise was absolutely delicious and will be making regularly
This is the third recipe I’ve tried of Taming twins within the last week, and all have been spot on! In all honesty I was a little apprehensive about putting dry noodles in the slow cooker, but it worked and it was so so good. All three meals have been demolished by the whole family, and no fancy ingredients left lurking in the cupboard never to be used again. Really affordable normal meals! I cant wait to try some recipes in the book now. Thank you Sarah for saving a mum’s sanity xx
Christine Lewis says
Lovely recipe made it several times very tasty . Very easy to make and healthy .
Joe Delvard says
As usual a great tasty recipe loved by all of us
This is another great recipe. I used chunks of chicken breast which were perfectly tender and falling apart. I used frozen mixed vegetables instead of green beans which worked well and 50g less of noodles to keep it more saucy. Absolutely delicious. I love the versatility of your recipes, your suggestions have given me a lot more confidence to tweak to my own liking. Thank you.

Can’t understand why mine wasn’t a nice yellow colour, any thoughts?
Sarah Rossi says
It will just depend on which curry powder you use Eleanor!
