Red Curry Chicken with Squash and Snow Peas
1 lb. Raley's boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. canola oil
1 small onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. peeled and grated fresh ginger
3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
2 tbsp. red curry paste
1 (13.5- oz.) can coconut milk
1 large carrot, peeled, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced
1 medium yellow squash, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced
4 oz. fresh snow peas, trimmed and cut into thirds crosswise on diagonal
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into thin 2-inch strips
3 tbsp. lime juice
Chopped fresh basil or cilantro (garnish)

This dish is best served immediately after it’s done cooking to enjoy the fresh crispness and vibrant color of the vegetables. Serve it on its own or over rice or rice noodles.

Prep: 15 minutes, Cook: 6 hours, 17 minutes (mostly unattended)
Serves: 4

1. Sprinkle chicken with salt. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for 8 minutes or until browned, turning occasionally. Transfer to a 4- or 5-quart slow cooker. 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.

2. 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.

3. Add squash, snow peas and bell pepper to slow cooker. Cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are just crisp-tender. Stir in lime juice. Taste and stir in additional curry paste, if you wish.

4. Ladle into 4 bowls and sprinkle with basil or cilantro, if you like.
