This was another recipe I had written down on a piece of paper that I came across a few weeks ago and decided to put together. And, in the process of doing so, I learned that my slow cooker had a crack in it, so slow cooker recipes will be put on the back burner for a bit as I figure out how to do the instant pot slow cooker function. This recipe is fine. It’s not an amazing you-must-rush-out-and-make-it recipe, but if you’re looking for a little peanut-flavored chicken, this is a really easy recipe to put together and it meets expectations.
Easy Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken
2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts (appx. 4-6)
3/4 cup salsa
1/4 cup low-fat peanut butter (crunchy or creamy)
1 tsp. dried or fresh grated ginger
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. cornstarch
2 tsp. lime juice
salt and pepper
Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in the slow cooker or crockpot. Combine salsa, cornstarch, peanut butter, soy sauce and ginger–mix well and pour over chicken.
Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours.
Stir in lime juice and serve over steamed white or brown rice. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
