Slow Cooker Chicken Curry from the Lemon Bowl

Slow Cooker Chicken Curry - The Lemon BowlWe made this last night for our evening of pumpkin carving. I really like the incorporation of Sweet potatoes in this and need to be honest that I really doubted they would be done in time. I procrastinated as long as possible to open the crock but to my pleasurable surprise everything was done completely. Even the kids ate it adding a dollop of sour cream/ yogurt to it. We will definitely do this again, maybe adding a bit more kick next time.
