This is very good and easy to make. Especially for those busy fall days once school has started. :D Note: This does call for peanuts. Posted for Zaar World Tour 05
- 6 chicken breast halves, cut into 1/2 inch strips (boneless and skinless)
- 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
- 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2⁄3 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1⁄4 cup lime juice
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1⁄2 cup chopped roasted peanuts
- 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.
- 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.
- Cook on High for 30 minutes.
- Garnish with green onions, cilantro and peanuts before serving.
This was fantastic! I used 3 chix breasts because we like a little more sauce - next time though I would probably use 4 chix breasts. Just a little too much sauce. The flavor is fantastic. Next time I will add some fresh grated ginger. Yum! I will make this one again.
Excellent recipe. I followed this recipe exactly and it was delicious. The peanuts and green onions are a good idea. Next time I might add some hot peppers to the sauce. Well-done, Amis.
