 Steps to Prepare Slow Cooker Indonesian Chicken Breasts with Herbs

To prepare Slow Cooker Indonesian Chicken Breasts with Herbs, start by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Then, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add some oil. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side until browned (optional).

Next, transfer the chicken breasts to your slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients, except the zucchini, cornstarch, 2 tablespoons water, and cilantro.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours until the chicken is cooked through and tender, adding zucchini during the last 30 minutes.

Serving Suggestions and Tips for Indonesian Chicken Breasts

To serve your chicken dish, you can pair it with steamed rice or quinoa. The dish is already flavorful on its own, but you can add a squeeze of lime juice or sprinkle some chopped cilantro for an extra burst of freshness.

Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days or frozen for later use. When reheating, make sure to add a splash of water or chicken broth to prevent the dish from drying out.

If you want to switch things up, you can also use this recipe as a filling for tacos or wraps. Simply shred the chicken breasts and stuff them into tortillas or lettuce leaves with some sliced avocado and shredded carrots.

Lastly, don’t forget to garnish your dish with some toasted coconut flakes or crushed peanuts for added texture and crunch. Enjoy your flavorful and easy Indonesian Chicken Breasts with Zucchini, Coconut Milk, and Herbs
