Thrifty Recipe- Indonesian Chicken

Chicken has been on sale quite a bit in the past couple weeks, so I've stocked up on thighs and drumsticks. When I saw that peanut butter was a main ingredient in this recipe I had to give it a try. It was delicious! We had it with steamed broccoli and baked potatoes, but it would also be great with rice and a stir-fry.

Indonesian Chicken
From Make it Fast, Cook it Slow

  • Eight chicken drumsticks, skin removed
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 2 chopped cloves of garlic
  • 1 1/2 t sesame oil
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 t ground ginger
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • Sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes
  • garnish with sesame seeds and lime wedges; optional

  1. Put the peanut butter into your crockpot and turn it to high so it can begin to melt. Add the other sauce ingredients and stir to mix. Add chicken and toss to coat.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-5. This is done when the chicken is cooked through and has reached desired tenderness. The longer you cook it, the more tender it will become, but it may fall off the bone if you cook too long.
  3. If your crockpot isn't at least 2/3 full, keep an eye on it so the peanut butter doesn't burn. You may need to stir a few times.
