Slow Cooker Peanut Butter Chicken is a very simple and delicious dinner for busy weeknights! Let your slow cooker do all the work; prep time for this dish is less than 5 minutes!
I am introducing you to my kids’ favorite crockpot meal. If there is one food they love more than tacos, it’s peanut butter chicken. The peanut sauce is slightly sweet, a little acidic, and will leave your house smelling AhhhhhMAZING! We love to serve this among a bowl of rice and some roasted vegetables. Broccoli, red bell peppers, and carrots are great options here. If your weeknights are super busy like ours, dinner can be ready in no time at all! All you need to do is stir the peanut sauce ingredients, throw in your chicken breast, hit start, and be on your way. It’s just as simple as buying take-out, but so much cheaper and healthier for your family.
