  • Add the onion, peanut butter, lime zest & juice, garlic,
    turmeric, cornflour, stock pot and coconut milk to the
    pan. Stir well to combine.

    combined and the chicken is covered.
  • If using a slow cooker, put on a low heat and leave for 4-
    5 hours.
  • If cooking on the hob, put over a low heat and simmer for
    2-3 hours. Check periodically.
  • About half an hour before it’s done, add the green beans
    and cook for the remainder of the time.

    the sauce has thickened.
