Take-out Tuesday, Slow Cooker Sweet Chili Cashew Chicken

Yay! Crock pot season has begun!!

Fall means supper simmering in the slow cooker filling your home with tantalizing aromas!

 

 

 

 

This slow cook chicken is family friendly, easy to put together and can cook while you’re busy finishing up your afternoon errands

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is tangy and sweet, can be served alone or over rice or noodles, and can be garnished at the end so your more picky eaters don’t have to deal with “the green things!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cut boneless chicken into 1 inch pieces {I used chicken tenders to make cutting even easier} and place the pieces in a large ziplock bag with cornstarch and pepper

 

 

 

 

 

 

Give the chicken a quick saute in a skillet with a little oil

 

 

 

 

 

 

Turn pieces to get both sides golden

 

 

 

 

Place chicken in slow cooker and top with carrots

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Combine sauce ingredients and pour over all

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Set cooker to low and 4 hours later, dinner is ready!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Garnish with green onions and cashews and serve in a bowl or over noodles or rice

    I am not certain I understand the tablespoon/cup measurements for some of the ingredients such as catsup.

    Hi Jenna, I just got out my large crockpot this morning! I am making Lemon Chicken. Your recipe sounds very good – I will have to try it! 💗 I love using the crock pot liners as they make clean-up a breeze too. 😊 Do you buy your ginger in a tube?
