Too Hot to Cook Dinner? Make Peanut Butter Chicken in Your Slow Cooker

It's hot, hot HOT here in northern Virginia, and I don't want to turn on my oven! So, instead, I use my slow cooker, because we do want to eat! Peanut Butter Chicken is a particular favorite. It's easy, cheap, and nutritious. It also tastes really, really good and makes great leftovers. The recipe is savory, not spicy hot. Nonetheless, if you like heat, feel free to add some cayenne and/or chopped fresh ginger. Chicken thighs stay super moist in the slow cooker, and the sauce--which includes plenty of vegetables--is great with rice. If you’d like, sprinkle additional cilantro, green onions, and peanuts on top of the chicken for added color, freshness, and crunch.
