These slow cooker satay chicken lettuce cups are SO GOOD. They’re super easy to make and need no morning prep besides putting everything in the slow cooker and turning it on.
I’ve chosen to serve in baby gem lettuce cups – for a healthier, low carb dinner, snack or lunch – but you could serve this chicken in a traditional wrap or even with rice!
This satay chicken is made with skinless, boneless thighs – pulled apart with forks once it’s cooked, and served with heaps of crunchy salad.
The peanuts I sprinkled on top are Coconut Peanuts by Tropical Sun. They’re roasted with coconut milk and taste AMAZING on with savoury dishes like this.
This is a real crowd pleaser slow cooker dinner which would be great to serve at a party too!
