Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken

Sharing is caring!

We made this Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken one night for dinner and it definitely has become a favorite for our family.

A while back, I found this amazing recipe on Pinterest that involved two of my favorite foods – cashews and chicken. This recipe is perfect because it is made in a slow cooker.

Making this dish is very very simple. Just put all your ingredients in the slow cooker and it does the job. You can serve this with a side of roasted broccoli and sticky rice for the perfect well balanced Asian meal.

Why This Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken is Delicious

If you like softer cashews you can add them during the cooking process. However, if you want more of a crunch, add them right before serving. I did both and then a sprinkling of green onions to finish it off.
