Slow Cooker Thai Pumpkin Curry Recipe

This is a simple, delicious, and healthy Thai curry recipe. The chicken can easily be substituted with Tofu. In that case use Veggie stock instead of water, and reduce initial cooking time to 45 minutes. Butternut squash can be substituted with most other winter squash/pumpkins.


  • Prep Time : 40mins min
  • Cook Time : 3.5 hours min
  • Ready Time : 43 min

  1. This recipe has a lot going for it, but I wouldn’t make it a slow cooker. I would brown the chicken in a Dutch oven and then add everything else. I would allow the squash to cook for at least and hour and I would use half the amount of liquie. The flavor was good so I look forward to trying it again.
