Thai Chicken in the Crock Pot

I wasn't expecting this recipe to taste too great (I mean, salsa and peanut butter?), but I thought I'd give it a shot. It definitely exceeded my expectations, and was in fact, delicious! Totally making this again!

Crock Pot Thai Chicken

4 chicken breasts
1 cup medium salsa
4 Tbsp peanut butter (I used reduced fat, creamy)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger

Combine salsa, peanut butter, lemon juice, soy sauce, and ginger in a mixing bowl. Place chicken in crock pot and spoon sauce over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 7–8 hours (I put mine in frozen and cooked it until we got home that night, about 10 hours), or high for 4–5 hours. Serve over rice, with extra sauce spooned over rice.

I know it sounds a little weird, but it really is good and totally works! Enjoy!

oh man--i just made spring rolls last week, and the dipping sauce was made of similar stuff (instead of salsa there were red pepper flakes and minced garlic and onion). So weird, but so good!
