Because the chicken curry is made in a slow cooker, it's easy to make in the morning and enjoy in the evening.
What is the Whole30 diet?
If you're not familiar with the Whole30 -- it's basically eating meats and veggies (with some nuts and seeds) for 30 days. No dairy, legumes (including peanuts, beans, lentils), sugar, pasta, bread, etc. for 30 days. It's meant to help you break bad habits. It can also help you see if eating healthier helps you feel more awake, alert, have more energy, etc.
What makes this recipe Whole30-friendly?
The curry has sweet potatoes, chicken, roasted cauliflower, and coconut milk. All of which are Whole-30 friendly!
This Whole30 chicken curry is mostly made in the slow cooker, which is great for making in the morning and eating in the evening.
The only part I do separate is roasting the cauliflower in the oven before serving. I like the roasted taste and crunch it gives to the cauliflower, but you can always add the cauliflower directly to the slow cooker if you'd like the Whole30 chicken curry to be a bit easier to prepare.
What if you're not doing a Whole30?
If you're not doing a Whole30, this chicken curry recipe is still so delicious! And if you're not doing a Whole30, you can even serve the curry over rice or quinoa to make it stretch even further.

How to make the slow cooker curry:
First, prep your ingredients! Add the curry powder, turmeric, coriander, cardamon, and salt to a bowl and stir to combine.
Next, add your coconut milk to your slow cooker and place the chicken breasts on top. Add the water, seasonings, and garlic to the slow cooker and stir to combine.
Cut up the sweet potatoes and onion and add them to the slow cooker.
Place the lid on the slow cooker and set the timer for 4-6 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
Forty minutes before the chicken curry is done, turn the oven onto 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Cut the head of cauliflower into florets and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
20 minutes before the curry is done, remove the chicken breasts and shred them. Return the shredded chicken back to the pot and continue cooking until the slow cooker is done.
Once cauliflower is done, add to the slow cooker, cook for an additional 5 minutes, then serve. Top with cilantro if desired.
