This is the third crockpot I’ve blogged about and I’ve learned something… there is no way to take a flattering photo of a crockpot recipe.
No matter how delicious the recipe is (and this one is quite tasty), a picture of a pile of saucy shredded chicken just can’t look pretty, especially when the sauce is brown and chunky…. Anyways, back to the point, this delicious crockpot recipe!
I love making crockpots on the weekend because:
1) It makes my apartment smell delicious all day long
2) I have lunches and dinners made up for the week!
The boyfriend requested a thai crockpot this time, so TA DA! The boy gets what he wants! (Plus it’s our one year anniversary tomorrow, so I was being extra nice)
– 2 lbs. chicken breast
– 1/2 cup chicken broth
– Half yellow pepper (diced)
– Half red pepper (diced)
– Small yellow onion (diced)
– 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
– 1/4 cup soy sauce
– 2 tbs. honey
– 1.5 tbs. lime juice
– 2 tbs. hot sauce
– 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
– Chopped nuts for the top after cooking
Step 1: Place the diced peppers and onions in the bottom of the crockpot.
Step 2: Place the raw chicken on top.
Step 3: Stir together all other ingredients and pour overtop of the chicken.
Step 4: Turn that puppy on high for 4 hours..
Step 5: When you have about 20 minutes left, shred the chicken and give it a good stir.
Step 6: Fill up a bowl with your crockpot goodness and grab some lime slices and squeeze their juicy goodness all over that thing!
(The boyfriend wanted to help with the blog pictures and thought a double lime squeeze was necessary to include… so shout out to him and his lime squeezing skills!)
I now have four meals all set for the week :) This crockpot is delicious paired with brown rice, rice noodles, or even by itself!
Meal prep is such an amazing time saver! What do you have lined up as meals this week?
