Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Thighs

This recipe was inspired by one I saw in a magazine at the gym, though not an exact replica. I thought it was so/so; a little sweet for my taste. John was a little higher on it; he liked it, but thought I overdid the clove (I did).

6 boneless chicken thighs

1/2 cup coconut milk or coconut cream

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp brown sugar

dash or two ground cloves (I used too many whole, and don’t recommend)

3 garlic cloves, minced

cilantro, chopped

peanuts, chopped

1 tbsp corn starch (optional), mixed with water

Combine chicken, coconut milk, sugar, soy sauce, garlic and clove in crock pot. Cook 4-5 hours or longer on low. Garnish with peanuts and cilantro and serve over rice or noodles.

If sauce is a little too thin for your taste, thicken with a little cornstarch.
