There are some recipes that you can easily toss together with the help of a crock-pot. This crock-pot spicy chicken bowl recipe with spinach is the perfect option for tonight.
Chicken is easily one of the most popular meats to cook at home. People can use different sauces, seasonings, and even cooking methods to create different flavors.
Chicken takes those flavors on really well, which is why it is considered so versatile. Unfortunately, we don’t always have the time to make something fancy, or that requires a lot of effort.
We would all be enjoying delicious dinners if we just had the time. Luckily, we have things like crock-pots to help make life easier. Crockpot chicken recipes are an entirely different beast.
Cooking chicken in a crock-pot really allows the chicken to absorb the flavors and remain juicy and tender. The question is, which flavor are you going for tonight?
This crock-pot spicy chicken bowl with spinach is a peanut chicken recipe. It has a similar flavor to Thai peanut chicken and even uses a special sauce to get amazing results.
But the best part is this recipe takes very few ingredients and is easy to make.
Crock-pot Spicy Chicken Bowl with Spinach
Cooking dinner doesn’t always have to be a hassle. This recipe uses very few ingredients because most of the flavor will come from the sauce.
The sauce is absorbed by the chicken, which means you get a delicious bite every single time. The chicken will need to be thawed for this one.
There are some recipes that allow you to use frozen chicken from the start. However, we want to keep just the right amount of liquid in this recipe since we’re relying on the sauce for the flavor.
The best way to get this recipe done is to thaw the chicken overnight and then start this recipe in the morning before leaving for work. Don’t worry; you will almost literally be just putting the ingredients into the crock-pot and turning it on; super simple.

Spicy Chicken Bowl Recipe with Spinach Ingredients
The key ingredient to this delish recipe is the spicy peanut sauce. It’s not too spicy or heavy on the peanut flavoring and adds flavor that kids and adults enjoy. I use two jars of House of Tsang Bangkok Peanut Dipping Sauce, along with 3/4 cup chicken bone broth and 2 pounds of chicken breasts.
You will also need two containers of organic spinach and two cups of cooked Jasmine rice.
How to Make a Spicy Slow Cooker Chicken Bowl
Spray your crock-pot with a non-stick cooking spray to make cleanup a bit easier.
Place thawed chicken breasts in the crock-pot.
Pour 3/4 cup chicken bone broth over chicken. Then, pour both jars of peanut dipping sauce over your chicken.
Set your crock-pot to low for 8 hours and place the cover on your slow cooker.
Now you can enjoy your day and get some work done! That truly is one of my favorite things about cooking with a crock-pot.
I start this around 9 a.m., and my crock-pot auto turns to keep warm when the cooking time is complete. Dinner is ready when I get home from work and drive the kids to the after-school activities.
About one hour before you want to eat, cook your Jasmine rice according to the directions.
Thirty minutes before you want to serve dinner, shred the chicken in the peanut sauce. I love using these meat-shredding claws because they work perfectly and are super easy to clean.
Add one to two containers of spinach fifteen minutes before you want to serve, and just let the spinach slowly sauté and simmer with the meat.
Serve the spicy chicken and spinach over rice, and enjoy!
