Hi! I'm Karen, a stay at home mom and blogger. Mostly I write about the new foods and recipes I've been making at my house. I like nutella, avocados, muddy buddies, mushrooms, tomatoes, peaches, berries, beans and rice, dark chocolate, cilantro, peanut butter, fried eggs and a million other types of foods. Most of the time, I like to make really easy and simple recipes--that's why I use my slow cooker a lot! I hope you find my posts helpful! Please comment and let me know when you make one of my recipes!

Recipe for Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken

This is another one of my favorite chicken slow cooker recipes.  It bursts with flavor, has a little spiciness to it and has pantry-friendly ingredients!

Makes 4-6 servings

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut each thigh into about 6 pieces (don’t use chicken breasts)
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp black 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 cashews

1.  Combine flour and pepper in resealable food storage bag. Add chicken. Shake to coat with flour mixture.

2.  Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken about 2 minutes on each side. Place chicken in slow cooker.

3.  Combine soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes in small bowl; pour over chicken.

4.  Cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours. Add cashews and stir. Serve over rice.

    i YOUR RECIPE FOR CASHEW CHICKEN, It sounds great can’t wait to try it. Just a hint though on #1 you said combine the flour and pepper in bag to coat with flour mixture. Did you mean to coat CHICKEN with flour mixture? I kind of figured that is what you ment, but just a suggestion, thought it might be a type “o” For beginner cooks which I work with a lot, they would say coat what ?? and then look in the recipe for directions without realizing you ment the chicken . Hope this helps.

    I’m going to make this recipe tonight. It sounds delicious! I was just wondering, your recipe says to add the cashews after 3-4 hours and stir. After you add the cashews, how long should you let it cook before serving?

    If I wanted to add veggies to this (broccoli, celery, water chestnuts) when would I do this?

    Can you tell me why you recommend thighs instead of breasts?
