Another Great Recipe: Slow-Cooker Cashew Chicken

cashew chicken

I’ve been getting really sick of the meals I’ve been making lately. I feel like it’s the same things over and over again. For as many recipes and I share, you would think that I would have more variety in the foods I eat. I decided to try out this cashew chicken recipe and I loved it! Since cashew chicken is my favorite thing to order at the Chinese restaurant we always go to, it’s nice to have this recipe at hand.

You will need:

2 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, each cut into smaller pieces

1/4 cup of all purpose flour

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tbsp canola oil

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tbsp white 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

Directions:

Combine flour and pepper into a resealable food storage bag. Add chicken and shake to coat. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and brown chicken for about 2 minutes on each side. Place the chicken in a slow cooker. Combine all other ingredients (except for the cashews) in a bowl, stir and pour over the chicken. Cook on low heat for 3 to 4 hours, add cashews, and serve over rice.
