These Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken Quinoa Bowls are topped with peanut sauce and a spicy cabbage slaw to make a tasty, gluten free and healthy meal!
There are things that my mother did growing up that I never understood.
Things like “The Mommy Handbook.”
This was the elusive book that I somehow never got to see, yet she referred to it every time she made up a new rule that I didn’t like. “I promise Taylor, the Mommy Handbook says that you can’t do that.”
I still don’t understand that one.
I KIND OF understand that one because, well, healthy. But, I would be much happier in a world where paleo brownies were the NEW cauliflower. You too? We can stay friends.
And things like making ALL THE DINNERS in her crockpot. ESPECIALLY some Crock Pot BBQ Chicken Quinoa.
And, now that I don’t live at home and have a man that gets hungry all the time, I GET that one.
Who does not love throwing a bunch of stuff into one pot, turning a little knob and PRESTO! There’s a delicious dinner waiting for you when you get home.
I don’t know what kind of wizardry happens in those crockpots but… me likey.
ESPECIALLY when the end result tastes like I went out to my favorite Thai chicken from the restaurant down the street…except I don’t have to wear real pants to eat it.
Personally, I don’t think I need to wear real pants to go out to eat, as I think pajamas are a total acceptable option anytime of the day. However, the hubs? He says no. Sad day.
This sauce. I mean this in the most normal way possible but, I am totally jealous that the Thai chicken gets to bathe in it for 5 hours. This is one of those rare times that I long to be a tiny little bird in a crockpot.
It doesn’t happen often, so don’t seek help. Yet.
It’s got a little bit of sweet honey, creamy coconut milk, soy for the salty factor and then peanut butter. Because peanut butter makes everything better. Fact.
Pair all that goodness with some tender chicken breast, fluffy quinoa and some spicy-smooth-crunchy-healthy cabbage slaw. I bet it would even be good with Thai Inspired Creamy Coleslaw from Vegetarian Mama! Then, you’ve got a dinner that, well…
You know I had to.
