Combine the salsa, peanut butter, coconut milk, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar and ginger in a slow cooker; mix well. Place the chicken in the sauce, spoon mixture over chicken to coat.
Place the lid on the cooker and set to LOW. Cook until chicken is very tender and sauce has thickened, 8 to 9 hours. Garnish with peanuts and coriander before serving.
Why to use thighs
You'll never guess this is made with chicken thighs! They really taste better than using breast meat which dries out in the slow cooker - and thighs are more economical.
The strength of the hot salsa dissipates when cooked, so this dish is not too spicy. You may even want to serve Tabasco or peri peri sauce as an accompaniment. If you don't have crunchy peanut butter, use regular peanut butter.
Had this on a rainy kids sports practice night. Was lovely to come home to! Sauce was not quite sweet enough for us so I added an extra teaspoon of sugar to sauce at the end. Kids loved it, makes it a winner in my book! - 09 May 2016
