Slow Cooked Peanut Butter Chicken

Slow Cooked Peanut Butter Chicken

Prep Time: 15 mins Cooking Time: 6 hours


  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 400ml tin of coconut milk
  • ¾ cup (187g) chunky or smooth peanut butter (for example Meridian, which is 100% nuts)
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (if your baby is over 12 months, you could use honey)
  • 3 tablespoons low salt soya sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • A tiny pinch mild chilli powder
  • 4 chicken breasts (500g)
  • 1/3 cup crushed peanuts for garnish (optional – may be best for adults portion only)



In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients, except the chicken and the crushed peanuts (if you choose to use these)


Place the chicken across the bottom of the slow cooker and then pour the sauce over the top – cover with the lid


Cook on low for 6 hours


Serve once cooled with a sprinkling of crushed peanuts, if you choose to use these.

This might be one of my best dishes yet; my husband was pretty taken aback by it – which says a lot as he’s very fussy! Annabelle liked it, but did spit out some of the chunkier peanuts. I’ve noticed recently how she is getting a bit funny with certain textures (just like I was as a child) and also how she hates having dirty hands! I think I have a little diva in the making! If your child is also a little fussy over textures, I’d recommend using a smooth peanut butter so that it’s a smoother texture.
