Slow Cooker Thai Chicken

I made this a couple of weekends ago when my sister in law was in town. I wish I would have known I was going to blog about it because I would have snapped some photos. #bloggerfail
 However I promise this is something worth making.

For Crock Pot:
2 1/2 pounds chicken pieces
1 cup hot salsa
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger

In addition (not for the crock pot)
 Hot cooked rice - I used quinoa
1/2 cup of peanuts chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Place chicken in slow cooker. Combine salsa, peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce & ginger. Pour over chicken.

Cover, cook on low 8 to 9 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours.

Serve chicken and sauce over rice/quinoa; sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro.

I promise it won't make you do this
