Clean Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Recipe with Peanut Sauce

Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Recipe
Now that school is back in session, I’m back to making my Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Recipe again. You will not believe what incredible flavor this dish delivers…and with very little effort.

A TRUE Fix It and Forget It Dinner

Not all slow cooker recipes live up to the “Fix It and Forget It” hype, but this one really does! What I mean by the hype is that you can’t necessarily dump all of the ingredients in the crock pot, set the timer and return home to a perfectly cooked dinner with all slow cooker recipes. A lot of times you need to pre-cook the meat or saute the vegetables first. But this Slow Cooker Thai Chicken recipe truly captures the spirit of what most people envision a perfect crock pot dinner to be. The ingredient list may be a tad bit lengthy, but the whole thing takes less than 20 minutes of preparation time. It makes the perfect back-to-school dinner, especially if you have kids in multiple different activities. If you set aside just a bit of time in the morning, you really will have a perfectly prepared dinner come 6 o’clock. Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Recipe

Make It a Meal

The peanut-Thai sauce with this recipe is absolutely loaded with flavor so any sides you add can be very simply prepared. I like to add a dark leafy green such as steamed spinach and a whole grain. My favorite whole grain lately is sorghum, it tastes better than quinoa and can be prepared in a rice cooker just like you would cook rice. So easy! Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Recipe Pinterest Pin

Hi Edna! I am so happy to hear you liked it. Thank you for taking the time to let me know! And yes, it can absolutely be made in an instant pot! I would say it probably only needs to cook for about 20 minutes if you try it that way. Please do let me know how it turns out if you give it a try ;)
