I just love this Crock-Pot Thai Peanut Chicken! It’s quick, easy and straight up delicious. Super peanuty, salty and sweet in all the right ways with the perfect degree of spice!

This Crock-Pot Thai Peanut Chicken is great with a number of different ingredients depending on your taste! I prefer mine with rice sticks and steamed vegetables, particularly broccoli, green beans, carrots, cauliflower and snow peas! Yummmm!!!

Thai Peanut Chicken sauce

I use my favourite Peanut Sauce recipe for this. Simply double the recipe and add 1/2 cup salt reduced soya sauce and BOOM you’ve got yourself the perfect Crock-Pot Thai Peanut Chicken guts! I prefer chicken thighs for this recipe but chicken breast will work as well. I find chicken thighs have better flavour and the texture is perfect. Chicken breast shreds too much but is still yummy!

Instructions

Equipment Needed

Directions

  • Make a double batch of my Peanut Sauce and add 1/2 cup soya sauce. Pour into a crock-pot and heat on low.
  • Heat a skillet on medium high with 1.5 tsp sesame oil. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper and when the skillet is hot sear both sides until golden. Place in the crock-pot and spoon the peanut sauce over the thighs. Cook on high for 2-3 hours or low 3-4.
  • Heat up the vegetable steamer and bring a medium saucepan filled with water to a boil. Chop up your choice veggies and toss in the steamer, cook the rice sticks per package instructions then drain, rinse with cold water and toss with 1.5 tsp sesame oil. Pull the thighs apart with a couple forks and allow to cook for another 30 minutes. 
  • Throw them all together and dive in!
