    Super easy to make. Used black instead of white pepper and put as little water as I could get away with so chicken was only about 2/3 covered - you don't lose the moisture from slow cookers so if you add too much it just ends up watery. It was tasty but not the most wow dish I have ever made. I served with stir fried bok choy and peppers and rice.  -  01 Jun 2015


    Good taste and plenty for 6. I added some carrots cut into thin lengths and also at the same time as adding the cashews gave it a stir noticed it was a little wattery for my liking and added some water mixed with cornflour.  -  14 Sep 2014


    I made this last night and my family loved it. I used chicken breast, because I don't like thighs.  -  29 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
