Slow Cooker African Peanut Chicken

 

I made this today to have on hand for a few meals. This dish may not look very pretty, but it’s low in carbohydrates, high in protein, and an absolute treat for your taste buds. You can use smooth peanut butter, but I love the crunchiness of the chunky style. You can use any hot pepper sauce you wish. I had a bottle of “Cajun Sunshine” that my brother put in my stocking at Christmas.

 

Ingredients:

1 (14.5 oz.) can organic diced tomatoes
¼ onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
3 tablespoons hot pepper sauce
1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup each of veggies like broccoli florets, Brussels sprouts (halved).
6 large skinless chicken breast tenders (or your favorite cut)
If you aren’t counting carbs too closely, you can add a few baby carrots

Combine everything except the chicken in a 5-6 quart slow cooker. Place chicken tenders on top. Cover, cook on low for 6-8 hours. Great to have ready for you when you walk in the house from wherever your day took you. Again, if you aren’t worried about carbs, quinoa or brown rice make a nice accompaniment. It’s delicious all on its own.

A hui hou!
