Slow cooker Thai chicken

OK this one is a lot of work. Just joking.
This one is pretty easy you can sneak out and play a good three or four hours of pickleball come home and dinners ready. Lisa found this one last week and we absolutely had to try it. Big thumbs up. Not only was it nice to come home to a nutritious and delicious dinner, but we could put our feet up, enjoy a beer or two and review my less than competitive play.

Notes

So we were playing a bit of pickle ball today and we’re talking about this recipe for dinner afterwards. Way too many people wanted to try it so I thought I would post early. This one’s for you Dave.
When you’re going to include coconut milk in your keto diet, it may make the most sense to use an unsweetened, full fat version.
The original recipe called for adding a sweet potato but because we are low carving we opted to omit. If you’re not low carb ing you might want to add it back.
