This Weekend in Hedonism (Segment 3)

  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner!
  • Slow Cooker Peanut Chicken
  • Description
    • Recently we had friends over for a football watch party, and needing a meal that would be approved by everyone, that I didn't have to fuss with (so I could hang out with everyone), I chose this.  It was well liked by everyone (we had pasta and rice to take care of the likes of everyone attending).  Because the zucchini at our grocery store didn't look very good, and they were out of red peppers, we had broccoli and green peppers in ours.  I believe Russ loved the dish as well.
  • Ingredients
    • 3 cloves garlic minced
    • 2 cups peanut butter (I mixed creamy and crunchy)
    • 1 1/2 - 2 cups chicken broth
    • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
    • 2 cups sliced zucchini (optional)
    • 3 cups chopped broccoli (optional) 
    • 1/2 cup soy sauce
    • 2 tsp sugar
    • 1 red pepper cut into thin, long strips
    • 2 tbsp lime juice
    • 1 cup chopped cilantro divided
    • Chopped peanuts for garnish
    • 12 ounce linguine noodles cooked and drained OR rice
  • Directions
    • Add garlic, peanut butter, broth, chicken, zucchini, soy sauce, sugar, and red pepper to slow cooker. Stir to combine. Cook on low for 4-5 hours or on high for 2-3 hours. An hour before serving, add broccoli (if using).  A half hour before you are going to serve, add in lime juice and 1/2 cup of cilantro. Serve over noodles or rice and garnish with remaining cilantro and peanuts.
  • Russ's Drink Corner
  • Glenmorangie 12 Nectar D'Or Single Malt Scotch
  • Description
    • The Glenmorangie distillery was established in 1843, on the Dornoch Firth by brothers William and John Matheson. The site originally held a farm distillery under the name Morangie. There is evidence that distillation was carried out at this site during the early 18th century. Production began in November of 1849. During the latter part of the 19th century Glenmorangie began overseas exportation and destinations included Europe and the United States.
