- Rub 2 tsp of the curry paste all over the chicken. Arrange the chicken on top of the vegetables. Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, 2 1⁄2 to 3 hours on High or 5 to 6 hours on Low.
- Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and cut into bite-size pieces. (Or, using 2 forks, shred the chicken.) Cover and keep warm.
- In a small bowl, stir the peanut butter and the remaining 1 tsp curry paste until smooth, then stir into the slow cooker. Add the chicken, stirring until combined. Transfer to a serving dish. Garnish with the cilantro, scallions, and peanuts. Serve with the lime wedges.
