Cashew Chicken

Cashew Chicken

Hi everyone! I sure hope you’ve enjoyed your holiday break and that you’re getting back into the swing of things. Christmas time is my favorite! But a close second is starting a new year. New outlook on life, new plans and goals, etc… Its all so refreshing! One of my goals this year is to make better use of my slow cooker. There are so many wonderful slow cooker recipes out there and I feel like I’ve been missing out on so many of them, including today’s Cashew Chicken recipe. And since you guys know how much we love chicken recipes,

This recipe is one I have tried at restaurants but never made at home. I’m glad we tried it because it was easier than I thought it would be. You make this in the slow cooker which makes things so much easier. The sauce ended up being so tasty! We love the added flavor the cashews brought, but if you’re not a fan of the nut you can totally leave them out.

We love this recipe because it takes about 10-15 minutes to prep and cook the chicken, and then the slow cooker does the rest of the work. We served our cashew chicken with brown rice to keep things a little healthier, but it would be great with noodles or white rice too. We are glad to have another yummy crock pot recipe to make on a busy day!
