Spicy CrockPot Thai Chicken

Submitted by: MISSRED1970
Spicy CrockPot Thai Chicken

Introduction

This is one of my family's very favorite dinners. One of the best things about this recipe is how easy it is to adjust to your own tastes. I entered it in with my true ingredients, which are SPICY! If you don't like it super spicy, adjust your ratio of Sweet Thai chili sauce (found in the grocery store asian food section) and the spicy Sambal Oelek (found in the same section). Try 1/4 cup of sambal oelek and 3/4 cup sweet chili sauce. Also very good with skinless chicken thighs, trimmed. I just ordered PB2 and am looking forward to trying it with this recipe, to cut the fat back even further! This is one of my family's very favorite dinners.

Ingredients

    6 boneless skinless chicken thighs (or breasts -- or a combination!)

    1 tsp grated fresh ginger

    1/2 cup Sambal Oelek ground chili paste (see note above!)

    1/2 cup chopped peanuts
    3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

Weight Watchers = 6 points per serving
Wonderful with a 1/2 cup of rice on the side.
Remember that you won't be using all the sauce, so the calories and fat that are listed are higher than what you will actually be eating!

    Made a few changes to suit my ingredients. Only had natural peanut butter so I reduced the amount to 1/4 cup (which makes it almost the same number of fat and calories). I also added green onions and red pepper which added some nice colour. Great recipe! My guests raved! - 1/7/10

    I can honestly say that this is the best Thai food I have ever made! The only change I made (and that I would suggest to those who like the combination!) was to add the zest of one lime to the chopped cilantro, then to squirt a little lime juice on each serving. Excellent! - 3/5/13

    I wasn't able to find the oelik, so I used chili sauce from right next to the Thai sweet chili sauce. Made it for book club tonight and it was a HUGE hit! Thank you so much for sharing! - 7/23/09

    Absolutely delicious! I took the advice and cut back on the spices a little and used chicken tenders. I also cooked on the stove instead, the final results were similar to spicy chicken wing dings. Will definitely make this again. - 4/28/08

    Very tasty! I only used 1/8 cup of the spicy sauce, and it was delicious. - 1/27/08

  • Dangerous stuff! I planned to leave it for tomorrow, but couldn't resist starting it tonight. I actually chucked a whole chicken in the slow cooker with the sauce. HAve left it on slow so it can fall off the bone and drink in the sauce more.. - 9/30/13

  • I made this tonight for dinner & I liked it, but boy, was it spicy! I will make it again, but cut the chili paste down to 1/4 c. & increase the sweet chili sauce to 3/4 c. Very flavorful & satisfying over basmati rice & served w/steamed broccoli! - 8/20/13

  • This was amazing! I used chunky peanut butter instead of adding peanuts. I also used hot chili sauce because I couldn't find chili paste. Put over jasmine rice & ate with zucchini. Will def make again! - 4/7/13

  • For some reason I thought this would be a breast w/ sauce on it (not shredded), but it was still very good -Not too hot at all! I set it on high & it was done in 3 hrs, so I just kept it on the warm setting until dinner. The recipe says there will be extra sauce, but mine did end up absorbing it all - 9/30/12
