Thai Peanut Chicken (M&F Hers)

Peanut butter fanatics will love this delicious slow cooker dish. Peanut butter lends creaminess and great taste, along with heart-healthy unsaturated fat, niacin, and vitamin e. It’s also the primary reason this entrée supplies nearly 20% of your daily requirements for vitamin E, necessary for guarding against cell damage and supporting your immune system, and nearly half of your daily requirement for niacin, necessary to convert the protein, fat, and carbohydrates you consume into fuel your cells can use. Chicken contains choline, an essential nutrient that supports your heart, liver, and brain, and helps prevent neural tube defects in early pregnancy; a serving of Thai peanut chicken supplies nearly 25% of your daily needs. You can substitute boneless chicken breast as well.
