Thai food rocks my world. I could seriously eat it every-single-day.  This Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken Recipe has a subtle and sweet peanut flavor that will bring everyone’s love over to the Thai side!!!!!(sorry, was that too much?)

 

But all joking aside, this is a great recipe to introduce some yummy Thai cuisine to your family. You can serve it over rice, noodles, as a salad topper or in lettuce wraps.  And the fact that you can set-it and forget-it in the crockpot makes this a KEEPER!

Optional:

brown rice or noodles to serve over, large butter lettuce leaves for lettuce wraps
