Check to see where the drawer is sticking.  It may be that you only need to smooth out a section of the drawer rather than all the edges.  Run the planer over the area of the drawer that needs to be reduced in size.  Keep checking to see if you’ve resolved the problem before continuing to remove wood from the drawer.  When done, smooth out the surface of the wood using high grit sandpaper.
