When I’m feeling lazy and craving takeout, Thai food is usually my go-to. While ordering takeout is a habit I know many people can’t shake, with just a little prep and help from your slow cooker, you can have a delicious homemade Thai curry ready for you when you get home, without paying a delivery fee.
In the slow cooker crock, stir coconut milk, curry paste, fish sauce, sugar, salt, and crushed red pepper. Add chicken, garlic, carrots, onion and ginger to the coconut milk mixture and stir until the chicken and vegetables are coated. Cook on HIGH for 2 ½ hours or LOW for 4 hours.
Add sliced bell pepper and bok choy to the crock and finish cooking on HIGH for an additional 30 minutes or on LOW for another hour. Stir in basil, cilantro and lime juice and shred the chicken before serving.
Serve this Coconut Thai Curry Chicken over cooked rice (jasmine or basmati would be delicious) with a little extra basil (or Thai basil, if it’s available in your local market) and maybe even some sriracha if you like your Thai food hot and prepare to rethink your addiction to the neighborhood Thai restaurant. And the best part? Not only are you able to control the ingredients and the salt in the dish, you’re saving a little cash.
In addition to offering modern convenience, the Set & Forget® Programmable Slow Cooker has three choices for easy, automatic cooking: program, probe and manual mode.
