Crock Pot Thai Chicken Soup is a lightened up, and super easy to make, version of Thai chicken curry. It’s also one of the few slow cooker chicken recipes that cooks for 8-10 hours so you can pop everything in before work and come home to dinner. This has turned into one of our favorite healthy recipes!
