This is a good weeknight recipe given that most of the work is done by the crockpot. EVERYONE loved it. Green beans aren’t typically what you would think of to put in a stew type dish, but all my kids like them so they made them in! I recently purchased Danielle Walker’s new cookbook called Meals Made Simple and this recipe was adapted from her Chicken Curry. It is a great cookbook, in case you are wondering, and I definitely recommend it! I didn’t want to call this dish by the same name because (1) I have a recipe on the blog already called Thai Curry Chicken, which by the way is totally different and; (2) There is no curry in this recipe, so I just couldn’t do it, even though it tastes like it there is.
