Slow Cooker Thai Curry Chicken Soup

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it definitely has been a winner! Not only is it an easy, one-crock-pot, no other fuss recipe, but it is absolutely delicious.  I will generally put this together at lunch, and then it's ready for dinner! I have not tried it on low for 8 hours yet, but I bet it would be just as delicious.  I have made this 3 times, and it never disappoints.  I even made this when my mother-in-law was in town visiting and I wanted to have dinner ready when I came home from work.  I'm allergic to peanuts, so I use almond butter.  I'm sure it's even tastier with peanut butter.  I also think it would be delicious with 1 can of cut pineapple at the end with the lime.

Also, random tip I picked up somewhere, the easiest way to peel ginger is with the back of a spoon! No more wasting ginger when you use a paring knife or peeler.  The ginger peel slips right off!
