Cashew Chicken

I know I keep saying this, but this Slow Cooker Cashew Chicken truly is my favorite Pinterest recipe so far!  I made 6 servings and brought 3 to school for some friends and everyone loved it!  It's got a little kick to it and is great served with brown rice.

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thigh tenders or chicken breast tenders (*I used breast tenders)
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp canola oil (*I used olive oil) 
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger (*I used ground ginger)
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup cashews

Combine flour and pepper in resealable food storage bag. Add chicken. Shake to coat with flour mixture. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken about 2 minutes on each side. Place chicken in slow cooker. Combine soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes in small bowl; pour over chicken. Cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours. Add cashews and stir. Serve over rice. Makes 4-6 servings.
