Recipe

Yes I realize that yesterday I wrote about my addiction to peanut butter and today I am writing a recipe that includes peanut butter maybe I am not quite over my addiction yet and I am trying to finish the jar so I don’t continue to eat it by the spoonful however it may be worth it to have around just to make this yummy chicken creamy, delicious, and honestly just as good as the Thai peanut chicken I order from around the corner. I served it over a 1/2 cup of rice noodles for an extra 2 points. I adapted this recipe from a terrific blog called A Year Of Slow Cooking to lighten it up a bit.

    I love Thai food, so I was excited to see this recipe. The taste was great, but after four hours in the slow cooker, there was very little liquid. I don't know if I should adjust the heat setting, add more liquid, or cook for less time. I will try it again this week, because we really enjoyed the taste, but maybe make a few adjustments.

    This was delicious!!! The smell as it was cooking was devine. The only issue I had was it didn't take to "peanutty" by the time it was cooked, so had to add another 60g which whacked the points up a bit. Definitely will make again.
