Serves 8-10, with rice.
2-1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup Thai green curry paste
2-1/4 cups coconut milk
24 oz broccoli florets (store-bought), or 2 large bunches of broccoli, trimmed, stems peeled, and roughly chopped
12 oz mushrooms, sliced (I use cremini or baby bella)
3 Tbsp fish sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup roughly chopped fresh basil leaves
2 tsp cornstarch
In a 6- or 7-quart slow cooker, place the chicken, curry paste and coconut milk. Stir to combine. Cook on LOW for 4 hours.
Turn the cooker to HIGH, and add the broccoli and mushrooms (the cooker will seem very full, but the vegetables will cook down quickly). In a small measuring cup, whisk together the fish sauce, sugar and lime juice, and add this mixture to the slow cooker.
Cook for 30 minutes, then uncover and cook for 30 minutes more. Stir in the basil. In a small measuring cup, whisk the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water, and add this mixture to the slow cooker. Stir, and cook for an additional 15-30 minutes, until the liquid has thickened slightly.
Serve hot, over brown or white rice, or rolled up in a lettuce leaf.
