Don’t you dare use a fork. This healthy Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken recipe, especially if you serve it over noodles or zoodles, is just begging to be scooped up with chopsticks. If you’re a peanut butter lover like I am, you will love the peanutty flavor of this recipe. And, if you’re fond of slow cooking, you’ll love it even more. It’s not quite an all-in-one dish, because the noodles cook separately, but it’s definitely close enough for even the busiest of nights.

Because you add the vegetables toward the end of the cooking process, they stay bright and crisp instead of getting limp and soggy.

It’s a great summertime slow cooker meal because it’s not soup or stew, and its outstanding flavor and texture will keep you coming back for more and more. Plus you don’t have to heat up your kitchen just to cook a meal if you use your slow cooker instead of your oven. If you want more ideas for your slow cooker for summer, click here.
