Slow Cooked Turmeric Chicken Curry

This is my go to slow cooker recipe every Winter! I have never bothered to write it up because it's so easy but I know how much you guys will love this and that it will no doubt be a savior to you as it is to me! Any time I have the ingredients, or know I won't have much time to cook dinner I chuck it all in the slow cooker in the morning (or the night before and sit the slow cooker pot in the fridge overnight), go about my day, come home and a bowl of warming and fragrant curry is ready to be served up. 

You can serve it with brown rice, basmati, millet, quinoa or sometimes I sub the cauliflower out for another veggie on hand and serve with cauliflower rice.  It makes quite a bit so there's plenty to be frozen for emergency dinners - win!  

I also do a vegetarian version of this in my Nourishing Wholefoods cooking class!
