This easy crockpot Thai chicken recipe is perfectly spiced and incredibly tender. The chicken can be used for tacos, sandwiches, lettuce wraps, and more!



1 pound chicken thighs
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup coconut milk (canned, full fat)
2 Tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
1/2 Tablespoon fish sauce (or additional soy sauce)
1 Tablespoon lemongrass paste
1 Tablespoon green curry paste
1/2 Tablespoon coriander
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
3-5 thai chiles, optional


Place chicken thighs into the crockpot.
Combine other ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together to combine. Pour into the crockpot.
Cook on low heat for 2 hours. Remove chicken thighs, saving the liquid from the crockpot if desired. Shred the chicken. Serve on tortillas, in sandwiches, or over rice!
