Crock-Pot Thai Chicken Thighs ~ Peanut Free

I love Thai food and chicken thighs have been pretty cheap so this recipe was a win-win for us. I made this with sunflower butter even though the recipe I based this on called for peanut butter. I don’t think you’d know the difference. I also cooked bone-in thighs instead of boneless but I can see the appeal of the boneless chicken for a dish like this.

We served this with some basmati rice and salad and it was a great dinner. Even my very picky 6 year old ate some.
