Thai Peanut Chicken – Crock Pot February 24, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

I have to admit, when mixing peanut butter and salsa together I was a bit grossed out. But this recipe turned out to be a winner. I used the full can of coconut milk because I hate using half but it was a bit liquidy so you may want to only use half a can.


  • 3 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup medium or hot salsa
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger root
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • cilantro (for garnish)
  • chopped peanuts (for garnish)
