Indonesian Crockpot Chicken

After making this I realized it is alot like the Thaiish Chicken I already have posted here, but what the heck - this is a milder version, so maybe more child friendly, and it was really fall of the bone tasty! So I am going to post it anyway!

Indonesian Crockpot Chicken

Ingredients
-enough chicken parts to feed a family of 4. (I used a 12 pack of thighs I had on hand)
--2 TB GF soy sauce or coconut aminos
--2 chopped cloves of garlic
--1 1/2 ts sesame oil
--1/4 ts cayenne pepper
--1/3 cup peanut butter or other nut butter of your choice
-- 2 TB xylitol, honey or sweetener of your choice
--1/2 ts ground ginger
--garnish with sesame seeds and lime wedges; optional

The Directions
--put the peanut butter into your crockpot and turn it to high so it can begin to melt
--add the other sauce ingredients
--stir to mix
--add your chicken; toss to coat. My chicken was frozen solid and kind of all stuck together. It didn't seem to matter.
cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-5. This is done when the chicken is cooked through and has reached desired tenderness. The longer you cook it, the more tender it will become
If your crockpot isn't at least 2/3 full, keep an eye on it so the peanut butter doesn't burn. You may need to stir a few times.
