Slow Cooker Thai (Peanut Butter) Chicken

Someone posted this recipe online at Baby Center but I failed to write down the source.  She raved about it.  I immediately put it on my menu as it's a crockpot meal and it only required a handful of ingredients, making it perfect for a work night meal.

I was disappointed though.  Not that this was a bad meal, but it was kindof bland.  Serena enjoyed it and I had no trouble getting her to eat her plate.  I wanted to post it because everyone's tastes are different and added to this, I'm not a big pan of peanut butter, so that may have altered my overall opinion of the dish.

I served this over white rice.

Place chopped chicken and onion in bottom of slow cooker, and peanut butter, soy sauce, lime and chicken broth, give a good stir and add remaining red pepper and cumin, stir again.
