Slow Cooker Peanut Chicken

Fun fact, the first time I made a version of this recipe, I burnt it to a crisp. Why?!? The recipe I was following did not mention anything about liquid so I didn’t add any. I thought it was sort of strange, but figured maybe there was enough from the ingredients. Not so much! Now that I have played around with the recipe, this is one of Michael’s favorite slow cooker recipes because of the flavors. It’s one of mine because it is easy to throw together. It is delicious served over rice. Hopefully it fills your tummy and makes you a happy camper too!
