This recipe is super quick and delicious! I will definitely be adding it to my repertoire. It reminds me of Filipino Kare Kare that my mom use to make when I was little.

Time: 15 minutes prep time/ 4 hours cooking time
Yields: 8 servings (I double the recipe for meal prepping but still cook it as two different batches)

Macros: 7.7C/14F/25P
Calories: 255

Ingredients:
8 skinless chicken thighs
Fresh ground black pepper
3/4 cup mild salsa
⅓ cup smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce or fish sauce
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
lime wedges

Steps:
Season chicken with fresh ground black pepper and place in slow cooker. In a medium bowl,
combine remaining ingredients except cilantro.
Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for eight hours in a slow cooker. (I did 4 on high)
Using a slotted spoon, remove chicken and place on serving platter. Pour sauce over chicken.
Garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.

I served mine with green beans but it would also be delicious with rice and other veggies!

    I’m assuming this would be just as good with chicken tenders? I don’t like dark meat
