Chalk it up for another DELICIOUS 30-minute meal! I seriously made this in about 3 minutes. What a wonderful thing a crock pot is...
Okay, so is it just me or do ALL crock pot recipes tell you to cook on HIGH for way too long of a time? I seriously never pay attention to the time on the recipes...I have just lived and learned I guess! This was such a different recipe for us, which is ALWAYS fun! For me to cook, anyway! It ended up really well. There are a few things that I would change here and there, and I have done that. I was afraid, for some reason, that this would be way too strange for our taste buds. Well, it ends up that is was very fitting. It was FLAVORFUL, not spicy, which is always good for us, we are wimps! It was also a quick, yummy, crock pot meal, which gives it a couple more stars on my list.
Thai Peanut Chicken
3 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts(I threw them in the crock pot frozen!)
3/4 cup medium or hot salsa(we used mild)
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 Tbs. lime juice
1 Tbs. soy sauce (or this to be GF)
1 Tbs. brown sugar
½ tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger root (or 1 tsp. ground ginger)
1/3 cup coconut milk
cilantro(for garnish, a necessity to us!)
chopped peanuts(for garnish)
Place chicken breasts in a slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix salsa, peanut butter, lim juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger root. Pour mixture over chicken. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. remove chicken from cooker and shred into large pieces. Return to crock pot. Add coconut milk and turn to warm setting for 15-20 minutes prior to serving.
Serve over rice or noodles.
Top with cilantro and peanuts. My husband LOVED the cilantro, as did I. I would NEVER make this meal without it...it gives it just the right PUNCH at the end! Enjoy!
