3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup orange juice

2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 can (13.66 ounces) light coconut milk, divided
1 cup uncooked basmati rice
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts

Place flour in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. Transfer to a greased 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker.
In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, orange juice, marmalade, oil, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, hoisin sauce and 3/4 cup coconut milk; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until chicken is tender.
In a small saucepan, bring the rice, water and remaining coconut milk to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender. Fluff with a fork. Serve with chicken and sauce; sprinkle with peanuts. Yield: 8 servings.
