Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken Recipe

There is something about fall that screams crockpot to me.  Maybe it is the routine of the school year and the fact that we don’t grill out like we do in the summer.  But the minute September rolls around I start perusing through my crockpot recipes to add a few in the rotation each month.  This Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken Recipe packs a punch with amazing flavor using simple ingredients.

2.  Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8. Remove the chicken and shred it with a fork and return it to the crockpot for the last half hour.



3.  Meanwhile, cook your fettuccine noodles according to package directions.  Serve over noodles with crushed peanuts and cilantro! Me + Cilantro = YUM!
