This chowder was very thick when cooked so I did not add the flour to the 1/2 and 1/2 and the consistency was good. Weak on the curry flavor so I added more.

I am assuming the chicken should be cooked prior to making this recipe

Hi Sue, since the chicken will be cooking in the slow cooker for 8 hours, there is no need to pre-cook the chicken. One of the many reasons we love slow cookers! Enjoy!
