  1. Place the chicken, carrots, onions and garlic in the slow cooker. in a small bowl, combine water, peanut butter, soy sauce, ginger and chili flakes. Pour on top of chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours (or high for 2 hours), or until chicken is cooked and veggies are tender.
  2. Add peas and wine vinegar. Cover and continue cooking on low for 10 more minutes**. Serve with some chives and peanuts on top.
  3. **Personally, I don't continue cooking. I just add the white wine vinegar, mix and serve.

This turned out to be a decent meal, although the sauce was a bit too rich for me. I would cut down on the amount of peanut butter. Also, I'd increase the cooking time to at least 4 hours on high. I did 6 hours on low and the onions were still crunchy, which ruined the texture of the dish. Otherwise, it's a good recipe, especially with some added palm sugar.

The dish was great but lacked a depth of flavour, I would perhaps add some kecap manis and palm sugar to the jug and sambal but that's because I like it hot and next time I think a few potatoes would go well to bulk it up for the kids but delicious anyway

So delicious and easy! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, then shredded them up once they were cooked. I served it with rice stick noodles. My husband loves it! We will make this often! Thank you!
