Broccoli Rabe and Thai Red Chicken Crockpot Curry

This is the perfect, quick, easy, and healthy meal, which gives off a super cozy feel as well. Simply add everything to your crockpot in the morning and come home at night to a house that smells incredible…and a delicious meal! We love to serve this curry with a side of rice, plus fresh naan for soaking up that yummy curry sauce!
