How to Make The Best Saucy Chicken


  1. In a large fry pan or skillet,heat half of the oil over medium-high heat;saute onion and garlic;stirring occasionally until softened about 4 minutes.
    Stir in tomato paste, paprika, 2 tbsps water, 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper and ginger;cook, stirring for 1 minute.
    Stir in coconut milk and peanut butter;let cool slightly. Transfer to a food processor puree until smooth (you can skip this stage if you like it chunkier)
    *You can make the sauce ahead and store in fridge for up to 48 hours.
    Sprinkle chicken with remaining salt and pepper. Brown chicken in remaining oil and transfer chicken to slow cooker. Pour sauce over top and cook on low for 4 hours.

  2. I serve this with mashed potatoes and steamed green beans.
