This recipe was shared by Stephanie U., and per her recipe, she says it is an unusu­al and deli­cious recipe that moves the delec­table com­bi­na­tion of hot pep­pers and peanuts into the main course. Works best in a larg­er (min­i­mum 5 quart) slow cook­er.

NOTE: Those with Peanut Aller­gies should not use this recipe!

  1. In a non­stick skil­let, heat oil over medi­um heat for 30 sec­onds. Add onions and cook, stir­ring, until soft­ened, about 3 min­utes. Add gar­lic, oregano, salt and pep­per­corns and cook, stir­ring, for 1 minute. Stir in chick­en stock, toma­to sauce and bay leaf and bring to a boil.
  2. Arrange chick­en over bot­tom of slow cook­er stoneware and cov­er with veg­etable mix­ture above.
  3. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 6 hours or on High for 3 hours, until juices run clear when chick­en is pierced with a fork.
  4. In a bowl, com­bine peanut but­ter, sher­ry, cur­ry pow­der and chile pep­per. Add a lit­tle cook­ing liq­uid and stir to blend. Add to crock pot along with red pep­per.
  5. Cov­er. Cook on High for 20 min­utes, until pep­per is ten­der and fla­vors have meld­ed. Dis­card bay leaf. Serve over hot white rice.

Make ahead: This dish can be par­tial­ly pre­pared before it is cooked. Com­plete Step 1. Cov­er and refrig­er­ate for up to 2 days. When you’re ready to cook, con­tin­ue with the recipe.
