Delicious Crockpot Peanut Chicken recipe!

This crockpot peanut chicken recipe is one I adapted from the Peanut Satay recipe found in Fix Freeze Feast. We love the peanut satay, but I wanted to enjoy the same delicious flavor without needing to grill, and I also wanted a way to stretch the meat to feed more people. I made a few changes to thin out the peanut sauce and then tweaked things to make it work in the crockpot. We love this recipe so much, I no longer make the more labor-intensive satay.

This recipe also makes a wonderful freezer meal. Simply mix sauce and pour over frozen chicken breasts in a freezer bag. Seal bag and freeze flat. To cook, pour frozen ingredients into the crockpot and cook 4-6 hours.

    How many do you feed with these proportions? I have ONLY five kids but they ear like truck drivers, down to the little 3 years old, and they love their sauce so I was just wondering if this will feed all 7 of us easily and if the sauce will be enough to go around. In faith, I already bought the peanut butter and chicken pieces: it made me hungry just reading the recipe : ) thanks!

      Jessica- My kids are big eaters, and this fed 12 of us (Apollo didn’t really eat any). We served it over rice and had a big salad. There was one serving left over. Maybe because we are used to eating rice with sauce over top? We transitioned into eating a lot of meals like this when our kids came home from Liberia. The chicken was chopped fairly small…I’m interested to know how this goes for your family..

      Thank you for sharing this. I just checked out the recipe, and I *will* be making that. I love barbecue but hate the mess :)

    Hey Renee! I FINALLY made this recipe for my family! I had 5 lbs of chicken thighs so I don’t know how that compares weight wise to frozen chicken breasts. I followed the recipe though and it turned out beautifully well. It did make enough sauce to go around, which had been my main concern. The kids gave it two thumbs up :) Thank you for sharing this super easy dinner :)

      Thank you for sharing this! I had someone post on Facebook that they had tried this recipe and it was so awful they had to cook something else for dinner:( I was totally confused because I wrote the recipe *exactly* like we make it and we love it. So happy to hear a good review!

    This does sound delicious. I’d want to use fresh grated ginger, though, I think. Was also wondering about maybe adding coconut milk? Also, does the brand of crockpot matter? Some of them seem to cook faster than others. I’ve got a Morphy Richards . . .

      Thank you! I have been wanting to find something like this, but hadn’t had the time to look yet.

    I have another recipe you might like that’s so so so easy, stretches chicken, and tastes delicious:
    Crockpot chicken tacos:
    Dump 3 chicken breasts in the crockpot, and add 1 can of Rotel (you might have to use two cans if you double the recipe). You can also add in whatever herbs and spices you want, but the recipe doesn’t remotely miss seasoning if you don’t. Turn on for 6-8 hours (I prefer 6 1/2). 30 minutes before finish, shred chicken w/ two knives, and add in 1/3 brick cream cheese. When done, stir cream cheese in. Then just lay out some tacos and/or tortillas and toppings.

    Does the chili sauce make it spicy or does it just add flavor? It looks good but I’d like to avoid too much spiciness. Thanks!

    What a wonderful recipe! It sounds and looks delicious. I’ve bookmarked this for later use (to make) and shared on my buffer to be posted out at a later date as well.

    I really shoudl use my slow cooker more, I’ve loved everything I’ve made in it so far but for some reason it spends most of the time in the corner of the kitchen gathering dust. I love satay flavours so will add this to my list of things to make when I’ve dusted.
