Cashew Chicken

Spray crock pot with non-stick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients except cashews in crock pot, stir well to mix. Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours or high 3-4 hours. Just before serving, stir in cashews. Serve over rice.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Although you could use bottled sweet and sour sauce, I wanted to make it from scratch, and still found it easy!
1 medium chopped onion
1 medium chopped green pepper
1 medium chopped red pepper
4 stalks chopped celery
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1- 20 ounce can pineapple chunks
2 tbsp quick cooking tapioca
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp ground ginger
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
½ cup water
2 tsp lemon juice

Spray crock pot with non-stick cooking spray. Place vegetables in crock pot, place cubed chicken on top. Pour pineapple chunks, with juice, over chicken. In a small bowl combine tapioca, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, vinegar, water and lemon juice. Pour into crock pot. Cover and cook on low 8 hours or high 4 hours. Serve over rice.
