From Betty Crocker’s Slow Cooker Cookbook

Gray:  I thought this dish turned out well, although it wasn’t quite what I had expected.  I was hoping for just a little more peanut flavor, and that wasn’t there.  All-in-all, it was not a bad dish, just not something that I would probably make again.  Sorry the post is a little late, I have just been slacking…

This cookbook has lots of good recipes and plenty of pictures.

Katie: I agree with Gray that this recipe did not turn out as expected. It’s not bad, just not my favorite thing to eat. I often love dishes with the name “Thai Chicken” that have peanuts in them. This just wasn’t one of them.
