Slightly spicy Cashew Chicken is one of those beloved dishes that people always order at their favorite Chinese American restaurant, and now you can make it at home in the slow cooker or the Instant Pot thanks 365 Days of Slow Cooking + Pressure Cooking. Karen says she wasn’t expecting to love the slow cooker version of this recipe as much as she did, and later she ended making it in the Instant Pot as well!
The recipe starts with boneless, skinless chicken thighs that are browned and then cooked in the slow cooker or the pressure cooker with a flavorful barely-spicy sauce. Stir in cashews at the end and serve over rice for a tasty Cashew Chicken dinner the whole family will love.
