5 Ingredient Thai Peanut Chicken in the Crock Pot!

 thai peanut crock pot chicken recipe This Thai Peanut Chicken recipe for the crock pot will quickly become one of your family’s favorites.  Guaranteed!  It’s easy, delicious and the kids love it!  Plus I can throw it all in the crock pot in the morning and all I have to do is make rice or pasta when I get home and dinner is done.  I’ve made this recipe at least once a week ever since I first tried the original recipe from Evolving Mommy.  I tweaked the recipe to have a few less ingredients and for all day crock pot cooking – but both the original and this version are delish!   Feel free to add fresh ginger and lime to the crock pot if you want a more complex flavor.  I didn’t have ginger or limes on hand one day and made it without.  It’s still fabulous, so for simplicity I left those ingredients out since. What are your go-to recipes?  Share your favorites please!  I’m trying to add some new flavors to my family’s dinner rotation.

Notes
  1. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are my preferred chicken for this recipe.
  2. It's important the salsa is "hot". It won't be too spicy, just adds flavor.

  1. This recipe really looks delicious. I’ve been trying to learn how to prepare more recipes in the crock pot due to being so busy all the time. I think this is one that I could definitely prepare here at home even with my hectic schedule during the week.
