Another slow cooker recipe! Yes, I love using it and I love trying out new things.  This one is delicious, if you like peanut butter.

1 Onion, chopped

1 Sweet Red Pepper, chopped

1 Sweet Potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes

1 clove Garlic, minced

1 tbsp minced fresh ginger

1/2 cup (125 mL) coconut milk

1/4 cup (50 mL) smooth peanut butter

2 tbsp Thai red curry paste,

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp lime juice

1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt

Cooked rice noodles 


Place chicken, onion, red pepper, sweet potato, ginger and garlic in slow-cooker.

In medium bowl, whisk together coconut milk, peanut butter, red curry paste, soy sauce, lime juice and salt until smooth. Pour over chicken; cover and cook on Low for 4 to 5 hours or until chicken and vegetables are tender.
