Spicy Peanut Crockpot Chicken

I found this recipe a year or so ago on Receipezaar and fell in love with it. It’s an easy dish and smells heavenly when you’re coming home on a chilly night. I serve it over basmati rice. I usually tinker with the amount of peanut butter and, if it’s natural, the amount of sugar. I like a more nutty flavor though!

Anyway, here it is:

Ingredients

1-1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs or boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into pieces

1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice

1 cup chicken stock

1/4 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky, depending on preference!)

1/3 cup diced onion

1 garlic clove (minced)

1 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (or more if desired!)

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 teaspoons white sugar (optional, but recommended if you use natural peanut butter!)

Directions

Put all ingredients except the chicken into a slow cooker. Stir to combine. Add the chicken. Cook on low until liquid has thickened and chicken is cooked (about five hours, although I’ve let it cook a bit longer when I ended up working late!)

I usually add a bit of flour at the end because I like a thicker sauce. Serve with basmati rice.
