Personal Notes:
This can be made in a slow cooker. Once you've cooked the chicken add to slow cooker and combine rest of the ingredients; pour over chicken. Cook on low 3-4 hr. If you don't like your cashews on the softer side, add to slow cooker last 30 mins.
What's great about this recipe is you can add vegetables is you like: peas broccoli. Double the sauce if you think it needs more.
