Crock Pot Peanut Chicken and Spinach Bowl Ingredients
Peanut chicken is such a great dish. There are so many health benefits to it as well. But you will need peanut dipping sauce to get started.
You can go with a couple of different cuts of chicken if you’d like. However, chicken breasts work best in this recipe. The rice and the spinach aren’t picky either. You may already have long-grain rice sitting in your kitchen, that will work. You could also choose to use fresh spinach if you want. Just make sure it is washed before you add it to the dish.
Spray the inside of your Crock Pot with cooking spray. This will keep the sauce and chicken from sticking while it cooks.
Pour the chicken broth into the Crock Pot. Then add the chicken and pour the peanut sauce over the top.
Cover the Crock Pot with the lid and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 3-4 hours.
When the chicken has finished cooking, shred the chicken in the sauce.
Add the spinach to the Crock Pot. Cover and let the spinach simmer and cook, about 15 minutes while the Crock Pot is still set on “Warm”.
Serve over the cooked rice.
