Add onion to skillet and cook for about 5 minutes or until soft, stirring often. Add garlic and ginger and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant, stirring constantly. Add 1 cup broth and curry paste and cook, stirring until smooth. Transfer mixture to slow cooker.
Add coconut milk, carrot and remaining broth to slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for about 6 hours or until chicken is very tender.
