INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tbsp. neutral oil
  • 4 green onions sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2- inch piece of ginger minced
  • 2 cups chicken broth homemade or low-sodium store-bought
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp. soy sauce gluten-free if needed
  • 1-2 tbsp. sambal oelek
  • 1.5 lbs. chicken breasts cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 head broccoli cut into florets*
  • Rice/Noodles peanuts and sliced green onion for serving

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. With a multicooker on the sauté setting (or in a pan) sauté the green onions, garlic and ginger in the oil over medium heat.
  2. Transfer to the bowl of a multicooker/slow cooker and add the broth, peanut butter, soy, sambal oelek, and chicken.
  3. Cook on low for 4 hours.
  4. When cooked, either add broccoli and cook for 30 minutes more or microwave the broccoli until tender, about 5 minutes, and add to the chicken.
  5. Serve with rice or noodles topped with peanuts and green onions.

Recipe Notes

*if you like the stems you can also use them! Peel the rough part off and cut into 1-inch long quarters. If slow cooking the broccoli add them first and then wait 10 minutes before adding the florets. If microwaving, cook them separately until tender, about 8 minutes.

If you like more heat don't be shy to add more sambal oelek!!!
