Thai Chicken & Vegetable One-Pot Recipe

Slow cookers are a busy cook’s friend. The ingredients for most dishes can be assembled in the crock in a minimum of hands-on minutes, and the food cooks unattended for hours. This different and delicious Thai Chicken and Vegetable One-Pot is no exception. It combines brown jasmine rice with Thai red curry paste and chicken broth, then layers of vegetables. Just before serving, thinly sliced chicken breast is stirred in (it cooks from the heat of the rice), and a can of unsweetened coconut milk is poured over, ensuring a moist and exotic dish.
Thai Chicken and Vegetable One-Pot can be cooked fairly fast on the high setting, or it can cook all day on the low setting. The vegetables come out crisp tender, the chicken moist, and the rice flavorful. It is truly a meal in one pot, and it supplies plenty of vitamins as well as fiber. The heat in this dish can be varied by reducing or increasing the amount of curry paste, and for a different flavor, other Thai curry pastes such as yellow, Panang, or green can be substituted. You can also vary the vegetables, depending what happens to be in your fridge.

8 Servings

1 cup brown Jasmine rice
1 1/4 cups water
1 tablespoon granular chicken bouillon
1 to 3 tablespoons red curry paste (1 is slightly spicy – 3 is extremely spicy)
1 medium sweet potato, cut into 1/2" chunks
1 small red onion, cut into 1/2" chunks
1 8 oz. package edamame (shelled)
1 1/2 cups baby carrots, sliced 1/2" thick

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast halves, sliced into 1/4" slices
1 14 oz. can unsweetened coconut milk
