Midweek Mealtime - Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

I'm beginning to sense a theme here...  That is, I've truly been enjoying bold flavors.  Tonight's recipe was a good one - a Thai dish without the typical curry.  This one is all peanut.  Feel free to experiment with different vegetables - in fact, throw whatever you have in the fridge as far as veggies.  They'll all be good!

Best part? 10 minutes of prep and then it cooks all day, so you can come home to a hot and delicious meal!
