Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken

November 5, 2012

As I mentioned in a recent post, I am re-falling in love with my slow cooker.  This is inspired by 365 Days of Slow Cooking and has awesome flavors due to the fresh ginger plus the pepper flakes. If you like extra sauce, just double the sauce mixture before cooking. The recipe as is below makes enough to just coat the chicken.
You will need:
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs or tenders
  • 1/4 c flour
  • 1/2 t pepper
  • 1 T canola oil
  • 1/4 c soy sauce
  • 2 T rice wine vinegar
  • 2 T ketchup
  • 1 T brown sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 t grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 t red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 c cashews

Then you will…

  1. Combine flour and pepper in large sealable 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.
  5. Pull apart the chicken with two forks. Add cashews and stir.
