Slow cooker chicken satay

One of my favourite slow cooker recipes on the blog is my slow cooker satay. But since taking a wholefood / clean eating approach to my diet I no longer eat some of the ingredients that make up the dish. So I have been playing around with different combinations to make a clean version of the satay and after a few different versions, this is my favourite. While it does not taste exactly the same, it has a great flavour and is still super easy to make. It goes beautifully with some sauteed baby spinach.
