Slow Cooker Peanut Chilli Chicken Noodles
Creamy peanut butter, slow cooked chicken and spicy chilli. We enjoy eating this one just as much as we enjoy making it, and hope you will too!
This recipe is super simple. Half of the ingredients are thrown in the pot upfront, and the other half are thrown in right at the end.
The little trick we use in this recipe is adding ‘quick cook’ or ‘straight to wok’ noodles. After the chicken is nearly finished slow cooking in the peanut chilli sauce, just throw in the noodles for 5 minutes, give them a stir and cook for 5 minutes more. You can add beansprouts at this point too.
The recipe card below calls for 0.5 tbsp of chilli flakes. Be warned, this packs a punch! However, we really like spice, so actually tend to cook this with 1tbsp of chilli flakes ourselves. If you’re hesitant, or don’t like spice too much then just add a pinch upfront. You can always stir in more at the end!
