Slow Cooker Spicy Chicken in Peanut Sauce

READY IN: 7hrs 15mins
Recipe by LindseyCockrell

This recipe is from a Betty Crocker cookbook. The ingredients sound a little odd, but it's easy to make, delicious, and healthy to boot! You can substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of the chicken thighs. Either way the chicken just falls apart.

This recipe is quite easy and a good starting point. We found it tasty, but not quite spicy enough. Instead of using tomatoes with green chilies already in them, I would add one of those small cans of hot, diced green chilies, and increase the cumin and the peanut butter. Made for Spring Pick a Chef 2012 game.
