  • Place chicken breasts on top.
  • Spoon sauce over the chicken, so it's fully submerged.

  • After 3 hours, remove chicken from the crockpot and cut into large, bite sized chunks. Place back into the sauce and stir to coat.
  • Serve immediately with sauteed bell peppers over rice. Top with chopped cilantro, crushed peanuts, and sliced green onions.

Notes

*For the bell peppers: I just warmed a nonstick pan over medium heat. Once hot, I added in olive oil and let it coat the pan. Then I added in large bell pepper chunks, seasoned with salt, and sauteed them until they were tender (about 10 minutes).
