Peanut Ginger Chicken Thighs

These chicken thighs are full of flavor and so easy to make. Make sure you give this recipe a try. I added some carrots to the slow cooker along with the chicken. This chicken is good served over brown rice.

1 cup medium salsa
1/3 cup light peanut butter
2 TBS frozen orange juice concentrate
1 TBS reduced sodium soy sauce
1 TBS honey
1 TBS grated ginger root
1/2 tsp curry powder
12 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 2 1/4 lbs)
3 medium carrots cut in 1-inch pieces (optional)
Chopped green onion, cilantro and chopped peanuts for garnish.

Whisk together the salsa, peanut butter, orange juice concentrate, soy sauce, honey, ginger root and curry powder in the crock of a slow cooker.  Place chicken thighs over the sauce.  Turn pieces to coat both sides with sauce. 

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 hours or high-heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, until chicken is tender. 

Garnish chicken with chopped green onions, cilantro and peanuts if desired.

Serves 6
