The beautiful thing about slow cooker recipes is that they are so easy. Like, so motha f***in easy.
Hopefully you’re like “yeah, duh,” but if not, I’ll make you a believer. Check this recipe out: Slow-Cooked Thai Peanut Chicken
Ingredients: Makes approx. 6 servings Edit: I was told recently that this recipe is quite spicy. I’m a fire-breather, so keep that in mind when adding spicy ingredients.
3 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 cup peanut butter, preferably an “all-natural” version (less sugar)
1 cup chunky hot salsa
¼ cup soy sauce
⅛ cup sriracha sauce
⅛ cup lime juice
2 tbsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp ground ginger
optional: 1 green bell pepper, 1 zucchini
optional for serving: jasmine rice, cilantro, green onion
Combine everything except the chicken and veggies in a bowl, and stir.
I know - it doesn’t look the most appetizing. Just try not to look at it for too long, and trust me - it’s delicious.
If you’ve decided to include some veggies, go ahead and chop/slice them up now. Then take all of your chicken, and trim any excess fat or other pieces you don’t want to accidentally put in your mouth. Maybe I’m a bit fussy, but I am always on the hunt to remove weird-gristle-fatty-veiny pieces from my chicken. Once the chicken has been in the slow cooker for 8 hours, it’ll be hard to tell an amazing bite from a weirdo bite, so do yourself a favor now.
Now, let me introduce you to one of my dearest friends: the slow cooker.
Alright, now take all of those chicken thighs and begin layering in the slow cooker. Distribute the veggies on top of the chicken (if you’ve opted to include)...
