Peanut Butter Chicken

Another crock pot home run.  My husband went on and on about this one.  The sauce was rich, so I would use more chicken next time to make it stretch.

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken, cut in chunks (I just put breasts in whole and then shredded the chicken at the end)
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (creamy or chunky, but I loved the texture that the chunky added)
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 lime, juiced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth

Put the chicken into the bottom of your crock pot and add the peanut butter.  Toss in the vegetables and cumin.  Squeeze in lime, and add soy sauce and chicken broth.  Stir as well as you can to combine (the peanut butter will be clumpy and that's just fine).  Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for about 4 hours.  Serve over rice or quinoa.
