Crockpot Thai Chicken Thighs

Another great recipe from Recipezaar - I love anything in the crockpot, and the salsa in the sauce give this a really nice tang - I use regular salsa since I'm not a huge fan of cilantro, and if I don't have lime juice on hand, any citrus fruit will work (we usually have oranges so that's what I use)

Crockpot Thai Chicken Thighs

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar cilantro salsa (or any salsa you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy)
  • 2 teaspoons ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  1. Put all ingredients in crock pot on low for 6-8 hours. (does it GET any easier??)
  2. Garnish with cilantro, scallions, and peanuts. (optional)
  3. Serve over rice

Total Cost (4 servings):
Chicken Thighs - Appx $4.00
Salsa - $0.80 (store brand, nothing fancy!)
Peanut Butter - $1.60
Ginger, soy sauce, lime - negligible
Rice - $0.30

Grand Total - $6.70, or $1.68 per serving!
