  • You might notice that our cashew chicken recipe doesn't include cashews as an ingredient. Before you think we're crazy, we did this on purpose.
  • A good number of cashew chicken recipes use the cashews as more as a garnish, rather than a main ingredient. 
  • Depending on what cashews you look at in your supermarket, the carb content can range from manageable to outlandish.
  • If you wish to use them in this recipe, please check the carb content of the brand you are buying first and calculate the net carb content.

  1. I followed the recipe but it was way too salty. Suggestions? Maybe 1|2 the aminos?

      Could be, but I would say the extra salt was the cause. I am a salt-loving person, but my earlier recipes were much more salt-heavy than now, as I learned my tolerance is much different than most peoples. I have removed the extra salt from the recipe ingredient for future makers. Sorry it didn’t turn out well for you 🙁

    Once again you’ve nailed it with this one! I browned my chicken in the instant pot on saute, then continued on with the slow cooker setting (one less thing to wash).
