Crock Pot Cashew Chicken

Since my goal this year to simplify where possible, I have found my slow cooker to be one of my best friend in the kitchen. I have been using it at least once a week for my meals, sometimes more. This week’s meal plan for my family include 3 recipes that utilized the slow cooker starting with this Crock Pot Cashew Chicken. I must publicly thank whoever invented this wonderful device!  It is AWESOME!

So my latest adventure using the slow cooker was with this crock pot cashew chicken recipe.  My hubby LOVES cashews so I was hoping he would love this dish.  I kept the heat on the lower end. My family doesn’t like things too hot.

To start, combine flour and pepper in a bowl. Then toss chicken in flour mixture to coat. Next, add some oil to a skillet. Heat it to medium to medium-high heat. Add chicken to skillet and cook until browned on each side.

Place that browned chicken in slow cooker. In another bowl, mix the soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes together. The pour over the chicken. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours. Before serving, add in cashews and stir. Serve over rice. I like to top each serving with a few extra cashews and diced green onion too.

  3. Wow! I was so excited to make it …..and then, Wow! It was sooooo salty. We couldn’t eat it and had to throw it out. What a waste of food. So discouraging.
