Instructions

  1. In a 5- or 6-qt slow cooker, whisk together coconut milk, curry paste, powdered peanut butter, soy sauce, and serrano pepper until blended. Stir in bell peppers and onion.
  2. Spray a large heavy deep skillet or wok with nonstick spray and set over high heat. Add chicken in a single layer; sprinkle with garlic, ginger, and salt; cook, without stirring, until chicken is browned, about 1 minute. Stir-fry until chicken is no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes longer.
  3. Transfer chicken to slow cooker. Cover and cook until chicken and vegetables are tender, 2 to 3 hours on High or 4 to 6 hours on Low. Stir in green beans. Cover and cook until crisp-tender, about 10 minutes on High. Stir cilantro and lime zest and juice into chicken mixture. Divide noodles evenly among 6 bowls. Spoon curry on top and sprinkle with lime strips, basil leaves, and chile peppers, if using.
  4. Per serving: generous 1 cup curry and 1/2 cup noodles
