This is similar to Indonesian Chicken, Peanut Butter Sauce (Slow Cooker), but the ingredients are slightly different. This is adapted from a recipe found on the web some time ago. I have a friend who inhales it whenever I make it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a crock pot, mix all ingredients, stirring to coat chicken.
  2. Cook on low 8-9 hours.
  3. Serve on rice, sprinkling chopped peanuts on each serving.
  4. This is good with coleslaw or a green vegetable.
  5. Notes:.
  6. The original recipe had 1/2 tsp salt which I omitted as the soy and salsa have enough salt.
  7. Both hot and medium salsa have worked for me. Smooth salsa also works but a chopped, peeled tomato improves the texture.
  8. I use unsalted peanuts. Because of the salsa and soy, this dish already has more than enough salt.
  9. 1 tsp powdered ginger instead of the ginger root worked just fine.
  10. I squeezed this into my 2 qt crock pot, cooked it on high until simmering and then turned it down. A larger pot would be easier.
