Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken

A BYU story about the blogger behind 365 Days of Slow Cooking introduced me to this delicious slow cooker recipe. Although it's not always the case, I think of a slow cooker recipe as "dump, stir, and leave." This one fits the bill--you dump in most of the ingredients, let it cook for several hours, cook noodles and add a couple of things in the last half hour, and you're done. And a great bonus: it helps me use up the oodles of zucchini currently sitting in my freezer.
