Lightly grease the inside of your crockpot bowl. In a large bowl, combine first set of ingredients and stir until chicken is well coated. Pour into greased crockpot and top with 2 bay leaves. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4. When done, stir together coconut milk and arrowroot powder in a small bowl until blended. Pour into chicken mixture and stir well. Allow to cook for an additional 20 minutes. Finally add in lemon juice and stir to incorporate. Serve with rice or riced cauliflower and enjoy!
