How to make crockpot Cashew Chicken
Pre spray your slow cooker with a non stick spray. Then add your chicken Breasts. Sprinkle each breast with poultry seasoning, 3/4 a cup of pineapple juice from the pineapple chunks, half a cup of soy sauce, and one cup of the pineapple chunks into the crock pot.
Next add 1/4 cup of the cashews into the slow cooker. You can add more after cooking. The ones that cook will be softer but, give the dish flavor.
Set your slow cooker on a low heat. You might not need to cook it the full time. Most slow cookers set at 4 hours. You want to cook it only until the chicken is fully cooked with an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Check it between 3-4 hours to see internal temperature.
- Over cooking can dry out the chicken meat.
