Crockpot Almond Butter Chicken Recipe + Giveaway Winner

Last night, I decided to whip out the good ol’ crockpot again. I bought it last year on Black Friday for like five bucks, but only ended up using it a handful of times. I really need to use it more often.

So anyway, I decided to try a recipe inspired by Hummusapien’s Almond Butter Broccoli Stir-Fry. I googled almond butter crockpot chicken, and found a recipe by Rachel Schultz. Her pics made it look delicious, so I figured why not.

Here are her ingredients and instructions, with what I did and used in bold.

Skinny Crockpot Thai Chicken

Serves: 3-4
Ingredients
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 red pepper, diced (Didn’t have this)
  • 1 onion, chopped (Used garlic instead, didn’t have onions)
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter (Used almond butter)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ½ cup vegetable broth (Did not use this)
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ½ tablespoon cumin (Didn’t have this, used basil instead)
  • Brown rice
  • Chopped scallions (Didn’t have this)
  • Crushed peanuts (Didn’t have this)
  • Cilantro

*So basically I didn’t have anything, but whatever.

Instructions
  1. Place chicken in the base of crock pot. Top with red pepper and onion.
  2. In a bowl, mix together peanut butter, lime juice, vegetable broth, soy sauce, and cumin. Pour sauce over chicken. (Didn’t really come out as a sauce for me, so I used a brush to spread it evenly over chicken.)
  3. Cook on low for 3-4 hours. Remove from slow cooker and serve over brown rice. (I served with rice and a lot of sauteed broccoli slaw inspired by Hummusapien’s dish above! Try it!)
  4. Top with scallions, peanuts, and cilantro. (Didn’t do this)

Goes to show, even if you don’t have all the ingredients, you can still make a delicious dinner. Everyone loved it!
