Slow Cooked Thai Chicken

Slow Cooked Thai Chicken

1 to 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts
3/4 cup salsa *see note
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon grated gingerroot
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro (optional)

Cut the chicken into one inch or so cubes. Place it in the crockpot. Mix the other ingredients except the cilantro and pour over chicken. Cook for 4 hours on LOW or 2 on HIGH. Serve over rice.
Note from contributor: I like Taco Bell’s hot sauce that you buy in the store. It’s smooth and not too hot like some hot pepper sauces, but you can use your favorite type of salsa. If you can’t find or don’t have ginger root you can use 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger instead. Cilantro should be minced and added at the last minute.
