Slow Cooker Sunday: Cashew chicken for a takeout fakeout

Le 13 April 2015, 09:00 dans Humeurs 0

Pass up the takeout, and make your very own Asian dinner in the slow cooker — 15 minutes for prep is all the time you need.

I'm a busy mom and wife, and sometimes I need food that is not only fast but super easy too. I used some organic chicken breast I had on hand and added it to my slow cooker with fresh chopped vegetables and a tasty ginger-soy sauce to cook it in. It's as simple as that.

You can serve this dish over cooked white or brown rice or even quinoa, if desired. Garnish your plate with roasted cashews, thin-sliced green onions and fresh Thai basil. This makes great leftovers and is so much healthier than takeout, since you can control the ingredients.

Into the bowl of the slow cooker, place the diced chicken and vegetables.

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the sauce, and mix well.

Pour the sauce over the chicken and vegetables, and place the lid on the cooker. Set the timer to cook on low for 6 hours.

Divide the steamed rice among plates or bowls. Spoon the ginger chicken on top of the rice.


Garnish with roasted cashews, fresh cilantro and thinly sliced Thai basil. Best served warm.

If you needed one more reason to love and respect Amy Schumer, then this is it: The funny woman has revealed that she does not intend to make any jokes about Bruce Jenner at the MTV Movie Awards.

Jenner's transformation has been the topic of much discussion in recent months, as well as the butt of a few unnecessary and offensive jokes, à la Jamie Fox. However, when Schumer hosts the MTV Movie Awards this weekend she admits that she has no plans to roast Jenner.

"I would never. I think he looks good," the Trainwreck star told Entertainment Tonight. "We have the same hair."

So, who does she plan to roast during the awards show? She plans to "lightly trash everyone," but she has one particular celeb in mind.

"Kevin Hart should be the most afraid, but I did give him a heads-up. I just thought it'd be funny to go after him super-hard," Schumer explained, adding, "I want to see 'Get Hart.' A movie that teaches you how to survive seeing a Kevin Hart movie."


The MTV Movie Awards airs on Sunday, April 12, and we can't wait to see what jokes Schumer has up her sleeve.
