Indonesian Slow Cooker Chicken

tomorrow night's dinner (i will get it ready in the crock tonight)

Indonesian Slow Cooker Chicken with rice and an asian cabbage salad.

Indonesian Slow Cooker Chicken
from here

Serves 4

4 skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoon soy sauce
3 cloves garlic -- crushed
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup peanut butter

~ In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and cayenne pepper.
~ Place chicken in the slow cooker.
~ Spoon sauce mixture over the top of the chicken.
~ Cover & cook on low heat setting for 6 hours or until chicken is tender & fully cooked.
~ Remove chicken from slow cooker and stir peanut butter into juices until smooth.
~ Spoon sauce over chicken to serve.

Serve with steamed or stir-fried veggies, and rice.

the asian salad recipe is again to use up the vegies in the fridge (it's not likely the kids will eat it lol) and will be a cross between the thermomix recipe and the changs asian noodle salad recipe. i'll use
red cabbage
wombuk (chinese cabbage)
shallots (that would be spring onions to you Dani ;p)
red onion
and maybe noodles

and a dressing of
sesame oil
sweet soy sauce
white vinegar

normally i would try to have some vegies that might tempt the kids but i really don't want leftovers! so i'd rather that they just have chicken and rice!

Hi Karen, what type of peanut butter do you use? Crunchy or smooth (or it doesn't matter)?

Thanks :)

i don't think it matters - i was going to use crunchy (only because the kids won't eat it on toast) but we didn't have enough so used smooth :)

what would you do if you didn't have any ginger in the house? :)

i think it would taste very boring without ginger tbh!
