Slow Cooker Peanut Chicken

Slow Cooker Peanut Chicken

One of our favorites and easy, ingredients sound crazy but yummy

4 Chicken Breasts- you can add more or less chicken
1/3 cup chunky peanut butter, generic is great
1 cup salsa, we like medium Picante sauce
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp ground ginger

We like it better when everything but the chicken is doubled and served over brown minute rice, if the breast are frozen it may become watery, if the sauce is too watery, cook the rice right in the crock pot when there is about a 30-40 minutes left.  Add a little water or skim milk as the rice cooks if needed as it expands.  If the sauce is already the right consistency, cook the rice separate on the stove.

In the crock pot add all ingredients and put chicken on top, cook on low 5-6 hours, when you can cut the chicken in half and it appears to be almost done, cut all chicken in half.  Cook your rice now either in the crockpot for about 30 minutes or on the stove according to package directions.  If cooking it on the stove, turn your crockpot off when the chicken is cooked through.

You can dice the chicken or cut it in half before cooking to reduce cooking time.
