Emily Bites' Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken

Here is another tasty slow cooker recipe.  Emily Bites' Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken is tasty and still very healthy.  It gives you the delicious taste of Thai food without all the calories.  

Yields:  9 Servings 

Servings Size:  1/2 cup

Weight Watchers Smart Points:  5 

Calories:  205

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
3/4 cup of PB2 powered peanut butter
6 tablespoons water
1/2 cup Trop 50 orange juice
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce (I used rice wine vinegar instead)
1 garlic clove, minced 
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 
3/4 cup canned lite coconut milk 


Lay the chicken breasts in a single layer at the bottom of your slow cooker.

In a large bowl combine the PB2 and water and stir until creamy.  Add the remainder of the ingredients and stir well combined.  

Pour the sauce over the chicken in the slow cooker to cover the chicken.

Cook on low for 5-6 hours until chicken is cooked through and shreds easily.

Remove the chicken to a plate or cutting board and shred with two forks (it should fall apart).  

Put the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker and stir into the sauce.  Continue to cook on low for another 5-10 minutes without the lid and then serve.  

Going forward I would top with bean sprouts, cilantro, and dry roasted peanuts.  The dry roasted peanuts would change the smart points and calories.
