As I’m sure you’ve gathered, I am slow cooker obsessed right now. Don’t get me wrong, I love cooking. But when you’re busy and on-the-go, nothing beats being able to throw a bunch of nutritious ingredients into pot, then coming home to the sweet/savoury aromas of dinner.
Speaking of mouth-watering aromas, I made this yummy Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken for my family the other night; and let me tell you, it was a winner.
If you like peanut sauce, you’ll love this easy to prepare recipe. Which originally came from one of my favourite food blogs, Family Fresh Meals.
Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken
- 2lbs, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 small red or orange bell pepper, sliced
- 1 small yellow bell pepper, sliced
- 1 white onion, chopped
- ½ cup chunky peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- ½ cup chicken broth
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 1/4 cup crushed peanuts for topping
- Brown rice or noodles to serve over, large butter lettuce leaves for lettuce wraps
- 1/4 cup Cilantro, diced (as a topping)
- Place peppers and onion at the bottom of the crockpot. This will act as a “stand” for the chicken so that it doesn’t dry out.
- Next place chicken on top.
- In a bowl, mix together peanut butter, lime juice, chicken broth, soy sauce, and honey. Pour sauce over chicken.
- Cook for 3-4 hours on HIGH or 6 on LOW. When 15 minutes remain of cooking time, shred chicken with two forks. Cover and continue cooking for the remainder of the time. Remove from crockpot and serve over brown rice, noodles, OR using as a salad topper or in lettuce wraps!
- We topped ours with peanuts, and cilantro.
Serve with Rice and a green salad or wrap up in lettuce with shredded carrots or sprouts.
