I make this cashew chicken in my Fagor® Multi-Functional Cooker where it cooks in about 2 hours (mine runs hot), but you could also make it in a traditional slow cooker; just allow a longer cook time.

  • Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Fagor®).

  • Combine cashews, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ketchup, sweet chili sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, and sesame oil in a bowl. Pour over chicken.

  • Close and lock lid. Select Slow Cook function. Cook on Low until flavors are well combined and chicken is cooked through, about 2 hours. Garnish with green onions.

Cook's Note:

Cashews will be softer if you add them in the beginning of the cooking process. If you like the cashews to have more of a crunch, add them right before serving.

EXCELLENT!!! My family loved it. I tasted the sauce and it was too tangy for my taste and needed a little more balancing. I added 2 additional tablespoons of brown sugar 2 teaspoons of molasses and 1 tablespoon of sriracha. Perfection! I don't care for the idea of mushy cashews so I added those just before serving. I didn't realize that this recipe called for a multi-function pressure cooker until it was too late to turn back (oops!) so I just threw it in a regular slow cooker. Since the chicken was already mostly cooked from being pan fried this wasn't an issue at all. I served over basmati rice with broccoli. Read More

Family loved it. I added the broccoli about the last 20 minutes of cooking time and added 2 tablespoons of white sugar for little extra sweet. The cashews in the last 10 minutes for extra crunch. Read More
