Decrease Serving 6 Original recipe yields 6 servings
1 (16 ounce) bottle Asian-style toasted sesame salad dressing (such as Kraft(R) Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing & Marinade)
1 tablespoon Thai chili paste, or more to taste
1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
2 tablespoons peanut butter
6 pieces skinless, boneless chicken (such as breast halves and thighs)
Stir together the sesame salad dressing, Thai chili paste, ginger garlic paste, and peanut butter in a bowl until the mixture is well combined. Dip chicken pieces in the mixture, and place into a slow cooker. Pour the remaining sauce over the chicken. Set the cooker to Low, and cook 4 to 6 hours, until the chicken is very tender.
In a 3- or 4-qt. slow cooker, combine the first eight ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk honey, water, oil, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and salt until blended; stir into oat mixture. Cook, covered, on high until crisp, 1-1/2 to 2 hours, stirring well every 20 minutes.
Stir in cranberries and raisins. Spread evenly onto waxed paper or baking sheets; cool completely. Store in airtight containers. If desired, serve with yogurt.
