  • 900 boneless skinless chicken thighs cut in 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks
  • 4 cups cubed seeded peeled butternut squashes (1-1/2-inch/ 4 cm cubes)
  • 1 can (400 mL) coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

In slow cooker, combine chicken, squash, coconut milk, ginger, curry paste, tomato paste, lime leaves (if using), brown sugar, garlic, fish sauce, soy sauce and salt.
