Clean Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken

20140105-141334.jpg

This meal has become a favorite in my house. I can even serve it as leftovers for my husband (who is a leftover snob), and he will happily eat it! Between the wonderful flavors, the lean chicken, the peanut butter, and a fiber-rich whole grain, this is a meal that will leave you completely satisfied.

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts (about 2 – 2.5 pounds) sliced into think strips

  • 1 cup Chunky Peanut Butter

  • 2/3 cup broth (chicken or veggie)

  • 3 Tablespoons organic soy sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons onion flakes

  • 1 Tablespoon honey

  • Juice of one lime

  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)

  • Fresh cilantro as garnish

Coat bottom of the crock pot with coconut oil. Place in chicken. In a medium bowl, mix all remaining ingredients except for the cilantro. Pour the mixture over the chicken. Cook for 6 hours. Serve over whole grain noodles or brown rice and top with chopped fresh cilantro.
