Ingredients

  • 2 - 4 boneless chicken breasts (chopped into large chunks)

  • 3 tbsp cornstarch (this is optional - see below)

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

  • 4 tablespoons ketchup

  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 garlic gloves minced

  • 1 teaspoon ginger (less if not freshly grated)

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1 cup of cashews

Instructions 1. Optional: in Ziplock bag put cornstarch and pepper and chicken and coat - then brown in skillet (about 2 minutes per side). If freezing this meal - skip this step (I don't do it in general but some people like it a little crispy and this will give you that texture). 2. Combine all ingredients except cornstarch and chicken. Mix well. 3. Put chicken in slow cooker (or in freezer bag) and pour mixture over. 4. Freeze or put in slow cooker for 4 hours on low (5 - 6 hours on low if frozen) Note: Slow cooker times may vary depending on your slow cooker
