Indonesian Chicken Recipe - for the slow-cooker

This was a week of recipe testing.   I found this one over at A Year of Slow Cooking . I wasn't sure it was an authentic Indonesian dish so I decided to put it here on our family favourites blog instead of over at Our Roots In Food

I followed the tweak suggestions and it turned out delicious!






Ingredients:
--2 T soy sauce (La Choy and Tamari wheat-free are GF)
--2 chopped cloves of garlic
--1 1/2 t sesame oil
--1/4 t cayenne pepper
--1/3 cup peanut butter
--1/2 t ground ginger
--2 T sugar
--sprinkle with red chili flakes
--garnish with sesame seeds and lime wedges; optional


Directions.
--put the peanut butter into your crockpot and turn it to high so it can begin to melt
--add the other sauce ingredients
--stir to mix
---Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-5. This is done when the chicken is cooked through and has reached desired tenderness. The longer you cook it, the more tender it will become, but it may fall off the bone if you cook too long.

Tip:

If your crockpot isn't at least 2/3 full, keep an eye on it so the peanut butter doesn't burn. You may need to stir a few times.
