Slow-Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken

Megan4344 views

Sunday Dinners call for something delicious, comforting, and easy to prepare, which is why most of my Sunday dinners are cooked in a slow cooker or Instant Pot (Affiliate link). There’s nothing that says “home” better than walking into the door after a day of Church worship, Church choir practice, and other Church meetings to a kitchen filled with the delicious aroma of our savory dinner. Sunday meals are heavier than those we eat the rest of the week, and that is just as it should be! This Thai Peanut Chicken is best served over Coconut Jasmine Rice. And, because a meal is never complete without a fresh fruit or vegetable, I usually pair this with a salad or roasted zucchini squash. Happy eating!
