Slow Cooker Thai Chicken:
Slow Cooker Thai Chicken served with rice noodles or rice offers the peanut and cilantro flavors of pad thai with a hint of heat to your liking straight out of the crock pot. So, despite the fact that my husband hates Asian flavored food, I occasionally make it just to introduce the kids to a variety of flavors. This week, I tried my hand at a slow cooker Thai Chicken. Hubby didn’t make it home to enjoy. However, Princess loved it. Boo refused to eat it. Sheldon, our beloved Beagle, ate up what was left on Princess’s plate when she ran to the bathroom. Guess he loves Thai too!! That silly dog.
Best of all, this was a slow cooker meal. Start with some boneless, skinless chicken thighs. My new chicken love. I don’t really like white meat. Flavorless. Might as well eat tofu. Well, not really. But I am so thankful for the boneless, skinless thighs for easier use of dark meat.
I grab some not so ordinary ingredients to pair up with my thighs, plus some soy sauce.
Mix the can of coconut milk with one tablespoon of red curry paste, two tablespoons of peanut butter, a teaspoon of grated ginger and a tablespoon of soy sauce.
Slice up the green pepper, or whatever color of pepper you have handy, and cut up the chicken into bite size pieces. Layer the peppers and then the chicken and then pour your sauce over top.
Cook until chicken is completely cooked. Five to six hours on low or three to four hours on high heat in the crock pot.
Twenty minutes before eating time, cut up one head of broccoli crowns and stir into the chicken. The peppers and broccoli give this Slow Cooker Thai Chicken a great texture.
At the same time, grab some rice noodles and get them soaking in hot water. I used a half of a package.
Then mix the drained noodles into the chicken and broccoli and squeeze juice from one lime over top.
Garnish with green onions and cilantro. Heck, garnish with a few red pepper flakes too.
If you like it a bit spicier feel free to add red pepper flakes to the crock pot while you are cooking the chicken too. Remember, a little will go a long way! A little heat will take this Slow Cooker Thai Chicken to the next level!

Your Chicken dish looks yummy! Thank you for hosting today and have a wonderful week!
Absolutely I will try this and it looks fantastic. I love Asian and loving anything in a slow cooker these days. I linked up with Learn to Grill Hassle Free Ribs. I'm a novice griller but we had great success with a dry rub on ribs on our gas grill yesterday, using hickory wood to smoke. Probably my fav Hunk of Meat Monday I have yet to share. Thanks for hosting Miss Leah!
This looks yummy...I love Thai food and I love crock pot recipes. I just tried a new one last night for Mango Salsa Chicken, so good...http://www.morethanmundane.com

You are so adventurous and creative in the kitchen. I get excited if I slightly tweak a recipe. You are my kitchen idol!
We have the same problem - the only restaurants around here could be classified as red neck or comfort foods! I wonder if my kids would eat Thai food? I'd love to try!
Thanks for mentioning me! How thoughtful of you. I really enjoy your blog and the recipes you show are great.
My husband and I love Thai food. I love that this is made in the crock pot! It looks so easy and delicious! Got to put this on my "To Do" List! Thanks for adding this recipe to Melt in Your Mouth Monday!

Hi Leah, Thank you for sharing your linky and your recipe on the Hearth and Soul Hop. Please put a link back to the hearth and soul hop so more people can share in the fun. This has always been a requirement of hop participation. I love thai rice noodle sticks and what I love the best is how easy they cook up and how quickly so you can basically throw them in a pot and minutes later you have the basis for a meal! All the best, Alex
what a great use of the slow cooker...i am still learning how to best use mine. i do love peanut and chicken together, i bet this tastes amazing! thank you for sharing with tuesday night supper club.

I'll definitely try this dish at home, thank you very much.
I found this to be really bland 🙁 My grocer only had thin rice noodles, and I added sliced onions but other than that followed the recipe. I thought I might have put in too much chili paste because my mix was a lot redder but I couldn't even taste that. Kinda bummed, but I'm glad I finally got some asian ingredients so I can experiment on my own 🙂
It's great to have a Thai-inspired slow cooker recipe! Doubled the peanut butter and red curry paste. Also added a teaspoon of Sriracha (hot chili sauce). Without those additions, this recipe is too bland for our tastes (that includes a 10 year old and a 4 year old), but maybe it's a good introduction to Thai for those who have never tried it before.
Heck of a job there, it ablloutesy helps me out.
When black men are roaming around causing mayhem, when Mexican kids are spray-painting walls and stop signs, when Muslims with every manner of bizarre habit seem to be sprouting like mushrooms in a country in which such people and habits were wholly unknown forty years ago, am I wrong to ignore the Jews and to worry about the ethnic groups that actually seem to be causing the problems?In a word, yes. All of the problems you mentioned are a result of successful Jewish efforts to prevent our exercise of self/non-self discrimination.
