Crock Pot Cashew Chicken - such an easy and delicious dinner recipe! This dish is full of flavor and can be served with rice or noodles!

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 Crock Pot. There are so many wonderful recipes out there and I feel like I’ve been missing out. Plus, simplifying dinner will be a huge bonus as baseball season for the little guy is quickly approaching. Today’s Cashew Chicken recipe is simple and it is, honestly, my favorite Asian recipe made in a Crock Pot. I love that the chicken doesn’t get soggy and its something that the kids will enjoy too.
