It's all about fast and easy meals. This time of year is always hectic and if you're like me, it's ALWAYS nice to come home to a hot home cooked meal!

I like crock-pot meals SO much I've started a Pinterest Board dedicated just to the cause. It's getting a little ridiculous! Also, spent a lot of time moving around some items on the Pinterest into different "Naughty & Nice" boards. We're organized now, y'all!

This recipe came from http://sallycooks.com/2013/06/27/crockpot-cashew-chicken/

Very yummy and so easy. You could bag it up raw and put it in the freezer for a throw together meal on a tough and busy day.

You Will Need:

2 chicken breasts, cut into smaller pieces (about a pound)

1-2 cups broccoli, chopped

1 cup carrots, sliced

1/2 cup cashews (unsalted works best so as not to over salt the recipe)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 cup soy sauce

4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

3 tablespoons ketchup

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tablespoon ginger paste

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup water or chicken broth

Layer chicken, cashews and vegetables in the crock pot.

Combine remaining ingredients except water and pour over chicken in crock pot.

Add water or broth if necessary so mixture is almost completely covered. Cook for 2-4 hours on high or 4-8 hours on low.

If you don't have lunch put together for the next day, you can always cook this over night and box it up in the morning on the way to work or school. Brilliant. I know!

You could serve this with brown rice, bulgur wheat, quinoa... whatever you can think up!

Enjoy!
