Thai Green Curry Chicken and Vegetables: Freezer to Crockpot Meal – Supper for a Steal

Crockpot Thai Green Curry Chicken & Vegetables

Happy Friday, we are ending the week on a spicy note (and more disposable plates). I’ll just pretend that I planned the purple plate for some contrast.

Both the husband and I were pleasantly surprised by this dish. We were kind of iffy going into it. Not knowing how it would turn out. It was spicy with great depth of flavor. It is a very vegetable heavy dish with a little bit of chicken thrown in there for the carnivores.

Dishes like this are a great way to cut down your meat consumption. Load that bag full with all your favorite veggies and then just one chicken breast for 4 people.

In the recipe below I recommend only using green bell peppers because they held up much better than the other peppers.
