Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken – An easy weeknight meal filled with flavor! Chicken breasts slow cooked with a thai peanut sauce made with just a few simple ingredients!

This Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken is a new favorite at my house! It tastes just like the chicken satay I always get at my local Thai restaurant and I was so happy with how it turned out! Plus, it is SO easy to make, I just popped all of the ingredients in my slow cooker and let it go on high for 4 hours.  I even got a chance to whip out my rice cooker which was in the back corner of my pantry covered in a bit of dust since I hadn’t used it in at least 1.5 years! This meal is so flavorful and delicious, I already am planning on making it again in a week or two!

To get everything I needed for the recipe, I stopped into my local Meijer store and grabbed the stars of the show, La Choy® Soy Sauce and Peter Pan® Peanut Butter! Everything was easy to find with the Peter Pan Peanut Butter being in the peanut butter section and La Choy Soy Sauce in the asian foods section.

 

Peter Pan Peanut Butter is my go-to peanut butter brand which is saying a lot because I am a peanut butter connoisseur! PB&Js are my guilty pleasure, I make 1-2 every day so I go through a LOT of peanut butter at my house! I just love the simple, wholesome ingredients and the wide selection of different varieties from crunchy, smooth, etc.  It’s perfect in a sandwich, as a spread, or even on a spoon!

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter

Welcome to day 4 of Pumpkin Week! 31 bloggers have teamed up to bring you a ton of pumpkin recipes October 2nd-6th! Four recipes in and only one left! Crazy how fast it has gone by! If you missed any of my other Pumpkin Week recipes (Pumpkin Madeleines, Pumpkin Pie Hummus, and Pumpkin Pie Cream Puffs) make sure to go check those out too!


So I have Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter today and it is so perfect on toast! This may sound like a weird combination of flavors but I’ve also been putting it on my peanut butter sandwich every day for lunch and surprisingly, the flavors end up working out!

After I made the Slow Cooker Apple Butter, I was so excited to try making some other slow cooker butters right at home because of how easy and delicious it was! I think next up I am going to try making some kind of pear butter or cranberry apple butter! It is a great way to get some use out of my food processor too, I tend to neglect it a bit more than I mean too.  It’s such a great kitchen appliance to have but too often it gets shoved behind a slow cooker for a few months until I remember it is there.

Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Cider

Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Cider – A favorite fall drink made with fresh apples, oranges, and a blend of delicious seasonings slow cooked for hours.

Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Cider

Making homemade slow cooker spiced apple cider is the best! I always go through so much during the fall whether I am baking with it or even just drinking a glass so making it at home means I can make as much as I want and have a constant supply of it all of the time! I love the fact you can just let it go in the slow cooker with only having to intervene once just to mash the apples a bit.  It is so simple to make!


So far, I have used this apple cider to make the Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal and I am planning on using it in Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter and Baked Apple Cider Donuts! Basically, I am rolling in fall recipes right now, that all I have been eating recently!

I highly suggest serving it hot with a bit of homemade vanilla whipped cream, a pinch of cinnamon, and a salted caramel drizzle on top!

  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 8-10 cups water

Directions

  1. Cut apples and orange into quarters.  Don’t worry about leaving the stems, skins, and core intact, it will get strained out later.
  2. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.  Leave at least 1/2 inch space from the top of the slow cooker.
  3. An hour before the apple cider will be done, use a potato masher to mash apples and oranges before letting it finish up cooking.
  4. Pour apple cider through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher.  Serve hot!

Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal – An easy slow cooker breakfast idea that tastes just like an apple pie! Made with fresh apples, apple pie spice, apple cider, and oatmeal! Simple to make and it’s a great way to feed a crowd!

Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal

Slow cooker meals are the best! I love just popping a few ingredients into my slow cooker and coming home a few hours later to a finished meal! I have 3 slow cookers, I am just kinda obsessed! Last week, I made Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal for breakfast and it was great because I would just grab a scoop every morning pour some almond milk on top along with some coconut sugar and walnuts.  It was a big improvement over my regular breakfast, prepackaged oatmeal.  Oatmeal has been my go-to breakfast for years because it is so easy to whip up in the morning before class.  I am not a huge morning person and kinda wander around aimlessly until I have had a few cups of coffee!


Until last year when I made Slow Cooker Pecan Pie Oatmeal, I really had no idea you could make things in a slow cooker that were not savory.  I was so excited that I did a lot of experimenting on different slow cooker recipes from fruit crisps to apple butter.
