Indonesian Peanut Chicken

I was super excited about this recipe - chicken with a peanut buttery sauce? I couldn't wait... It ended up just being okay to me - kind of a bland taste. Something that was good to eat, but not to put on my redo list... I added some soy sauce on it to give it a little more kick and that made it better! Try it, it might be your favorite, even if it wasn't mine...

Indonesian Peanut Chicken
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)

1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup reduced fat creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons chili sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 cups cooked brown rice
6 tablespoons chopped salted peanuts
5 tablespoons chopped sweet red pepper

Place chicken in a 4 quart slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the onion, water, peanut butter, chili sauce, salt, cayenne and pepper; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or until chicken is tender. Shred meat with two forks and return to slow cooker; heat through. Serve with rice. Sprinkle with peanuts and red pepper.

Serves: 6
Points: 7 per 1/2 cup chicken mixture and 1/2 cup rice
