OK, HERE IT IS! That Coconut Cashew Chicken I featured yesterday with that crappy photo. Now I’m ready to share! This is a good one people, pit in, bookmark it, MAKE IT! You’ll be licking the sauce off the plate when you’re done, yup it’s one of those.
It was so creamy, you’d think I dumped a gallon of heavy cream in here. Want to know the kicker? It’s actually pretty healthy for you. AND it’s easy. Like seriously easy.
If you are unfortunate enough to be home all day while this is cooking, you might want to put a bib on, the smells are going to make you drool (just warning you!)
Simply throw the chicken & some onions in the slow cooker, blend up the cashew cream in a blender, pour on top & set it to cook! Yup, that’s it.
Now that I’m thinking about it, I bet it would be even better (is that possible?) if you toasted the cashews before you made the sauce. Let me know if you try it
I served it over some bulgur wheat and topped with some toasted coconut & cashews which added a nice crunch. You can serve it over your favorite grain (quinoa, millet, farro, rice, whatever!)
OH – I almost forgot! I threw in a bunch of Kale for the last 10 minutes of cooking to let it wilt. It’s not necessary but if you want to sneak in some extra nutritional goodness, throw in the greens!!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:
OMG, is it cold out there or what? I went outside once yesterday to take Oto out and that was one too many times! I am so grateful for our cozy warm home.
I posted this on facebook yesterday, cold days always makes me think of this Lewis Black skit:
