The Frugal Kitchen: Crockpot Cashew Chicken

A flavorful Chinese dinner that can be prepared in advance, then cooked in the crockpot.


2lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp black pepper
3-4 Tbsp canola oil
1/4 cup soy sauce or Bragg's Aminos
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp brown sugar or more to taste
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup cashews

Combine flour and pepper and use to coat chicken pieces.  Heat skillet to medium high.  Brown chicken in hot oil on both sides.  Place chicken in crockpot.  Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes in a bowl; pour over chicken.  Add chicken broth or water until liquid is at least halfway up the sides of the chicken.  Cook on low for at least 4 hours.  Add more liquid if needed.  Serve over rice with green onion slices or cilantro for garnish.

Enjoy!  This should serve four people.

God bless,
