Cashew Chicken- Crockpot

Posted on March 17, 2009. Filed under: Chicken |

I absolutely love Chinese food. I mean love it. If I can make it at home, it is even better. The one problem with eating Chinese food out, is the nutritional factor. Or lack there of. There is a lot of oil and salt, and not always a lots of vegetables and whole grains.

Serves 4
4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless, cut into 1-inch cubes
Peanut Oil
Chili Powder (about 1 Tbsp)
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. Honey
1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups raw cashews
3 cups roughly chopped onions
3 cups roughly chopped mushrooms
2 cups chopped bell pepper


Put the chicken cubes in a crockpot dish. Cover the chicken with peanut oil. Add soy sauce until the marinade turns brown (about 2 Tbsp per breast). Sprinkle the chili powder all over the top of the chicken. Stir, and sprinkle again. Stir and sprinkle again, stir. You should be able to see each piece of chicken with lots of sprinkles of chili powder. Add some honey, about 2 Tbsp for each breast. Add the ginger and garlic.

Add the cashews, onions, mushrooms and bell pepper to the crock pot.

Cook on high for 4-6 hours. Or on low for 6-8 hours.

Serve over steamed brown rice.
