Crock Pot Spicy Peanut Chicken

READY IN: 5hrs 10mins
Recipe by Truffles

I modified a stove top version found in "The All New Good Housekeeping Cookbook". This is a real comfort food staple in our house and a great smell to come home too. I serve it over basmatti rice with some Nann bread from the market.

I modified the crockpot version back to stovetop! Added some extras like soy sauce, fish sauce, fresh cilantro and dry roasted peanuts on top. I also used brown sugar rather than white. And rather than using olive oil to saute the chicken, onion and garlic in, I used aromatic coconut oil and then a couple tablespoons of coconut milk for thickener. There's nothing quite like the Thai combination of peanut, coconut and cilantro!

  1. Put all ingredients except the chicken into a slow cooker. Stir to combine.
  2. Add the chicken. Cook on low until liquid has thickened and chicken is cooked (approximately 5 hours depending upon size of chicken pieces - I always use a meat thermometer to be sure).
