Crockpot Cashew Chicken

Here is another great recipe to add to my list of crock-pot recipes!

We love Chinese food in this house!!   I would eat it all the time if I could but my husband is so picky we can only go to 1 restaurant that he has been going to since he was a little boy. The same restaurant was actually our first date back when we were dating in high school.  But sadly its half way across the valley or we would probably go at least once a month.  

So instead I have to get creative in the kitchen and try to make my own Chinese dishes.   I’m not complaining though because this recipe was so simple and easy to make and it actually tasted great.   The best part it’s made in the crock-pot which means less dishes to wash and you don’t have to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen preparing dinner!

Cashew Chicken

Crockpot Cashew Chicken
Prep time
Total time
  • 2 chicken breasts, bite size
  • ¼ tsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1 garlic glove, minced
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup unsalted cashews
  1. Dice chicken into medium sized chunks, set aside. Add all other ingredients into the crock-pot and give it a nice stir. Add chicken. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. The last 30 minutes add in cashews and continue cooking. Serve with rice.
Make sure you use reduce sodium soy sauce and unsalted cashews because otherwise it will be extremely salty. Also I would double the sauce cause I would have liked to have a little more for my rice.
