With the days getting shorter and the weather getting colder -- all we want to do is light some candles and get cozy at home with some serious comfort food. So today, I'm sharing one of the most popular recipes from That Clean Life that will help you do just that.

Our Slow Cooker Curried Chicken Stew is awesome for so many reasons. It's ridiculously delicious, budget-friendly and creates about four to six servings (depending on how hungry you are). It only takes 10 minutes to throw together and leftovers freeze beautifully for meals down the road. Oh, and you can easily replace the chicken with an extra can of lentils or beans to make this meal vegan-friendly.

This recipe is just the best and ought to become a staple on your weekly meal plan. But don't take our word for it. Try it out for yourself!
