Instructions
  1. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Use a non-stick spray or olive oil to lightly grease the pan.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together all spices. Rub each chicken thigh on both sides with rub. Place chicken thighs in skillet and sear for 1-2 minutes per side (inside will be raw).
  3. Place seared chicken in slow cooker and top with chicken broth and lime juice. Place peppers on top of chicken. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until chicken is very tender.
  4. Mix together arrowroot flour with water and add to the chicken broth mixture. If your mixture is extra runny, add in another tbsp of arrowroot. Also add in coconut milk. Cook on low for another 15-20 minutes until mixture is thickened and creamy.
Recipe Notes

Arrowroot flour/starch is a thickening agent that can be found in most health food sections (or the area where the other flours are located) of your grocery store.

Use only the full fat coconut milk (can be found in the Asian section of your grocery store).
