  2. Spray large heavy deep skillet or wok with nonstick spray and set over high heat. Place chicken in skillet in 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, 2–3 minutes longer.
  3. Transfer chicken to slow cooker. Cover and cook until chicken and vegetables are tender, 2–3 hours on High or 4–6 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 fresh chile peppers, if using.
  4. Per serving: generous 1 cup curry and 1/2 cup noodles
