Cashew Chicken

This is another GREAT slow cooker recipe from 365 Days of Slow Cooking. This is not your typical slow cooker chicken recipe that is smothered in a cream sauce (which are still delicious). This one is great if you are looking for something different with a tangy, slightly spicy kick to your chicken. Don't pass over this one because it looks like it has a lot of ingredients. I had most everything in my pantry and it was really easy to put it all together!

Cashew Chicken
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thigh tenders (I used chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces and thought that it was fine)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
Combine flour and pepper in resealable food storage bag. Add chicken. Shake to coat with flour mixture. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken about 2 minutes on each side. Place chicken in slow cooker. Combine soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes in small bowl; pour over chicken. Cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours. Add cashews and stir. Server over rice. Makes 4-6 servings.
