Slow Cooker Chicken with Cashews
“You can prepare countless types of meals in the slow cooker, including Chinese chicken with cashews. This recipe does require a little work because you need to brown the chicken in the pan first.” Bobby
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs (cut into 1” chunks)
¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil
¼ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 garlic clove (minced)
½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
½ cup cashews
½ cup green onions (sliced)
Add flour and pepper to a large seal-able food storage bag or seal-able container.
Shake to coat the chicken with the flour mixture.
Heat canola oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the chicken and brown for 2 minutes of each side.
Remove from the pan and place the chicken into the slow cooker.
In a small bowl combine soy sauce, ketchup, sugar, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes.
Pour the sauce over the chicken in the slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours or until the chicken is fully cooked when the internal
temperature has reached 165°F.
Once the chicken has finished cooking add cashews and stir.
Serve over rice and top with sliced green onions.
Makes 4 Servings.
