Crock pot meals are perfect for these cold winter days.

If you're looking for a way to spice things up you need to try this tasty Thai Chicken made right in the crock pot.

You can make this meal quickly in the afternoon. Perfect if you go home for lunch you could set it up to cook the rest of the afternoon your a work and it'll be ready when you walk in the door.

The thing that surprised me is that it has peanut butter in the sauce but you'd never know it. You can't taste it. It's so creamy and rich you'd swear there was cream soup or sour cream in it and there's not.

Directions:

  1. Place the chicken breast strips, bell pepper and onion into a slow cooker. Pour in the chicken broth and 1/4 cup of soy sauce, then season with cumin, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Stir to blend, then cover and cook on Low for 4 1/2 to 5 hours.
  2. Remove 1 cup of the liquid from the slow cooker, and mix this with the cornstarch, peanut butter, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and lime juice. This should blend into a fairly thick sauce. Stir the sauce back into the slow cooker, and place the lid on the pot.
  3. Cook on High for 30 minutes. Garnish with green onions, cilantro and peanuts before serving.
