Slow Cooker Paleo Thai Chicken

 

I don’t know about you, but every once in a while this Paleo journey feels a little restrictive. No dairy. No grains. No sugar. But then I eat a meal like this Paleo Thai Chicken, and it all seems right again. I mean, when else can you mix almond butter with your meal and feel okay about it? It feels like cheating…but it’s not!

    What are coconut aminos #1?

    • Kelly says:

      If you read through the recipe you can see we have to divide the coconut aminos. To be more helpful we broke it out to #1 and #2. See the directions above.

    Thanks I see that they are divided in the recipe but what are ‘coconut aminos’? Is it coconut oil?

    Absolutely wonderful idea. I love Thai, I use my crock pot often and I love the pre-planning aspect. Doing some freezer meals to help with my weekly cook up! So glad I found this site!

    I served this over spaghetti squash in order to fake thai noodles, and I loved it! I really missed my thai peanut noodles and this totally matched up to that level of deliciousness!
