So heavenly good! The crock-pot makes this dinner a snap to make. Once cooked, you shred the chicken and can serve it over steamed cabbage, brown rice or cauliflower rice. The peanut sauce is so rich and decadent tasting! Each serving has 262 calories and 11 grams of fat.
Ingredients for Chicken:
- 6 chicken breasts (4 ounces each) boneless, skinless (24 ounces total)
- 1½ cups onions, diced
- 1¼ cups red bell pepper, diced
Ingredients for Sauce:
- ½ cup salsa (medium heat), I used Pace Chunky Salsa
- ⅓ cup + 1 tablespoon peanut butter, chunky or smooth
- ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce (for gluten-free, use Tamari soy sauce)
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar or other white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoon garlic, minced
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
Ingredients for Serving:
- 12 cups cabbage, shredded
- 6 tablespoons green onions, diced, for topping, optional
Add chicken, onions, and red bell peppers to the bottom of the crock-pot.
In a small bowl, add all sauce ingredients and blend well. Pour over chicken and vegetables. Be sure everything is coated well.
Cook on low heat for 4 hours or on high heat for 2 hours. Once done, remove chicken, cool slightly, and shred or dice into small pieces.
Just before serving: Add cabbage to a large bowl and steam in microwave for 2-3 minutes, until soft.
To serve: Place about 1½ cups steamed cabbage on each plate. Top with 1 cup chicken including sauce.
Freeze any leftovers, if desired. Add cabbage, chicken, and sauce to individual containers and freeze.
Makes 6 servings. Each serving, 1 cup chicken and sauce, and about 1½ cups cooked cabbage.
Peanut butter is an excellent source of protein and healthy fats and can help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. For the healthiest choice, look for brands that have no oil or sugar added.
This dish contains 7 grams of fiber, thanks to serving it overcooked cabbage.
