Place all ingredients, chicken on the bottom (except mushrooms, pea pods & ramen noodles) in slow cooker on low 6-8 hours. Stir and shred chicken. Add mushrooms & ramen noodles (break if desired, or leave whole). Cover and cook another 5 minutes or so. Add sliced pea pods (they will cook quickly in hot broth). Serve with more chili paste (or chili sauce) if desired. Garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired.
