Indonesian Chicken

In the bottom of the crock pot:

2/3 cup peanut butter

Turn the pot on HIGH to start to melt/soften the peanut butter


4 TBSP soy sauce
4 cloves garlic
1 TBSP sesame oil
1 tsp ground ginger
1 TBSP lime juice
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional for some kick)

Stir together then add about six or seven 5oz chicken breast pieces and stir the sauce with the chicken. Cook on HIGH 4-5 hours (stir again after the first hour) or LOW for 6-8 hours.

Serve over rice. Garnish with lime wedges and/or toasted sesame seeds.

*We liked this one, a very different flavor. Similar to the Indonesian Chicken Spaghetti recipe that we've made. Everyone liked it, so we'll be repeating it.


  1. I just found your website and I am so happy I did! I was looking for something to do with these boring boneless skinless chicken breasts that would be easy and quick. I appreciate that your recipes don't seem to all have a can of cream of whatever soup in them. I don't cook with those, and love that you manage to get flavor out of your recipes w/o using too much processed food. Thanks again, and keep up the great work! Gail (mom of 4, near Washington DC)

  2. I haven't added any new recipes for a while, but keep coming back to the ones that are here. Thank you for your compliment! I also have a couple of cream soup substitute recipes if you prefer to make your own for the recipes that need them. The substitute recipes can be found in the labels.
