This recipe is great because you can really add or take out many of the ingredients.  Wrap it up in great big lettuce/kale leaves or serve it over a bed of greens.  I love lettuce wraps.  The Hubs isn’t a fan because they are a bit messy and he’s right!  These are a messy but tasty dinner!

Ingredients
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • ½ cup of natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup of stock (I had veggie, so that is what I used but any kind of stock is fine)
  • ¼ cup of Bragg (soy or tamari sauce would work too)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 inch of fresh peeled ginger
  • 1 tbsp of honey or agave
  • 1 tbsp of rice wine vinegar
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1 zucchini chopped or spiraled
Instructions
  1. In your food processor or mini prep, combine peanut butter broth, Braggs, lime juice, vinegar, garlic, ginger and honey. Process until smooth.
  2. Place the chicken breasts at the bottom of your crock pot.
  3. Pour marinade over chicken and make sure all pieces of covered.
  4. Cook on low 4-6 hours.
  5. When the chicken is done use two forks to shred it.
  6. Place chopped red pepper and zucchini on top and leave your crock pot on warm for about 30 minutes.

Dinner was great!  Thumbs up from the hubs but after having a couple of them wrapped in lettuce he just ate it with the brown rice.  Other veggies that could go in this would be shredded carrots, chopped onions.  Anything!! You could probably throw everything in including the veggies into the crock pot at the same time but I’m not a fan of overcooked soggy veggies.  I prefer the crunch!  If you like heat you could also add some Sriracha or red pepper flakes.

This will be going into rotation as I will be using my crock pot plenty in the weeks to come!

  1. Thanks for sharing this – I am so bad about using my crockpot. I have a fairly nice one too, but have yet to figure out the timing!

    One of my favorite easy crock pot meals is to take pork tenderloin, spritz it with olive oil and then rub a mixture of rosemary and garlic on it – let it cook most of the day – delicious!!!
    I can’t wait to try these lettuce wraps – we love lettuce wraps (even though they are messy!!).
