Michael and I had a busy day today, and we really haven’t gone food shopping this week.  We decided to try and eat from the stock of food we already have in our fridge, freezer, and pantry.  My crockpot was the perfect solution for such a day! 

This recipe uses ingredients I already had on hand, so I decided to try it.  Boy am I glad I did!  I got the original recipe here.  We both thought it was absolutely fantastic.  It kinda tasted like asian peanut noodles, so I could see where this would be really good over noodles.  It made a really lovely sauce. We had it over polenta.

1) Place chicken breasts into the crockpot.

2) In a separate bowl, mix all the rest of the ingredients.  Microwave for 10 -15 seconds if the peanut butter mixture is too hard to mix.

3) Pour the mixture over the chicken.  Mix the chicken and the peanut butter sauce until all the chicken is coated everywhere.

4) Cook on low for 6 – 8 hours.  Enjoy!

UPDATE: Had this yummy leftover peanut chicken yesterday, and it was even better the second day!  I put it over broccoli this time, and it was absolutely fantastic.  Sorry about the blurry picture.
