Indonesian Peanut Chicken Recipe

“Here’s a great make-ahead recipe! I cut up fresh chicken, put in a bag with the remaining slow-cooker ingredients and freeze.” To cook her frozen Indonesian Peanut Chicken, Sarah simply removes the bag a day ahead to thaw in the fridge, then pours all the contents into her slow cooker.
