Crockpot Cashew Chicken
We have been trying new recipes this past month and pushing ourselves to try new things. I am not sure why I put off making Asian inspired recipes in the crockpot but now that I have it is on like Donkey Kong....ok that was totally cheesy! 🙂
I am on a mission to try new ingredients and ideas for the crockpot. I love making everything I possibly can in the crockpot. We have over 160 crock pot recipes on the blog! They are definitely one of my favorite things to make. I can't believe we have now topped over 750 recipes on the blog now.
I love that you can have Chinese takeout at home with this recipe. This slow cooker cashew chicken is a great recipe that is thankfully super easy to make. Skip the trip to the Chinese Restaurant and make your favorite dish at home.
