First, you’ll cut the chicken thighs into about 6 pieces each. I love using kitchen shears for this step. I trim off excess fat and then just cut the chicken into bite-size pieces.
Next you’ll use some thick paper towels to blot the chicken. Try to get as much moisture off of the chicken as you can. It’s important that the chicken is dry so that it can get a good browning on it.

Give the chicken a shake! Shake the chicken in a zipper plastic bag with some flour and pepper to coat the chicken evenly.

Heat a bit of oil in a pan and then when the oil is hot, brown the chicken 2 minutes on each side. Spread the chicken out so that each piece gets it’s own little spot of heat.

Finally you’ll add the chicken to the slow cooker and pour an easy, homemade sauce over the top. Cook on low for just 4 hours and you’ll have the most amazing, tender and flavorful chicken ever!

Oh, and one more thing!  Don’t forget the cashews.  It is “cashew chicken” after all.  You’ll add in the cashews after the chicken is cooked and let them warm up for about 10 minutes. I like to top my chicken with slices of green onions but you could throw some cilantro on the top instead.
