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.

Mix well.

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.
