Thai Peanut Chicken (Slow Cooker)
Full Credit to: 365 Days of Slow Cooking
Serves 4-6

12 oz linguine or fettuccine noodles, cooked and drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
2/3 cup peanut butter (* I used 1/3 chunky, 1/3 creamy)
1 cup chicken broth
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 cup shredded zucchini
1 cup shredded carrot (*my addition)
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 red pepper, cut into thin, long strips
1 tbsp lime juice
1 cup chopped cilantro, divided
chopped peanuts, for garnish

Add garlic, peanut butter, broth, chicken, zucchini, soy sauce, sugar, and red pepper to slow cooker. Stir to combine. Cook on low for 4-5 hours or on high for 2-3 hours. A half hour before you are going to serve, add in lime juice and 1/2 cup of cilantro. Serve over noodles and garnish with remaining cilantro and peanuts.

NOTES: I wanted extra for the week so used 2 pounds of chicken and added 1/4 cup chicken broth to compensate. I used boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins to cut down on the prep time. This dish is very easy to put together and had excellent flavor. Looking forward to leftovers!
