One of my priorities when it comes to real food is that it be easy, delicious and nutritious. There aren’t a whole lot of kitchen tools that can do all this at once, but the slow cooker somehow manages (the Instant Pot is also at the top of my list).
If there’s one thing I appreciate, it’s a good slow cooker recipe. And that’s why I’m so excited that I get to share a recipe from Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes, a new ebook out from my dear friend Arsy Vartanian, who blogs over at Rubies & Radishes.

The recipe I’m sharing with you today is one of my favorites – Red Curry Chicken Wings! These are the perfect Game Day snack, or if you need something more filling for a crowd. Just spicy enough for a memorable kick, but not enough to mask the flavors.
Time to break out the slow cooker! If you’re in need of a slow cooker, I have two words for you: The Instant Pot. It’s more than just a pressure cooker. It also has a slow cooker feature. The reason I am recommending this instead of traditional slow cookers is because so many of the slow cookers on the market seem to be having reports of lead contamination. Plus, I don’t know about you, but kitchen storage space is at a premium in my house, so I like not having to keep multiple appliances around.
If you really want a new slow cooker, I have seen some trustworthy bloggers mention that this Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker does not test positive for lead. I personally haven’t used this specific cooker, but wanted to share just in case.
If you are well-versed in the slow cooker lead debate, please leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts! I am always on the lookout for safe products to recommend, but just don’t have time to always do the in depth research on everything I want to research! 🙂

- 3 lbs. chicken wings
- 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch (I love this brand)
- 2 tablespoons cold water
- ¼ cup fresh basil, finely shredded, and limes for serving
- Combine coconut milk, fish sauce and curry paste.
- Add wings to the slow cooker and pour the curry sauce over them.
- Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. (note from Jessica: you can also do this using the slow cooker feature in your Instant Pot).
- Using a slotted spoon, remove chicken from the slow cooker and set aside.
- Preheat broiler.
- Place remaining sauce in a medium saucepan.
- In a separate bowl, make a slurry with arrowroot and water. Add the slurry to the sauce. Bring the sauce to a boil and simmer until sauce has thickened, 1015 minutes.
- Toss the wings with the thickened sauce. Place wing pieces in a single layer on a broiler pan.
- Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat until chicken is browned, turning once.
- Sprinkle with shredded basil and serve with fresh limes.
