Instructions

    To Cook Immediately
    1. Place chicken in slow cooker. Combine cashew butter, coconut aminos, honey, rice vinegar, red pepper, chicken broth, and garlic in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour over chicken. Cook on low 6 hours or on high 4 hours. Stir in vegetables. Cook on high 30 min or until vegetables are tender crisp. Serve over cooked brown rice, optional. Top with cilantro and cashews, if desired.
    To Freeze
    1. Add chicken to a large zip top freezer bag. Combine cashew butter, coconut aminos, honey, rice vinegar, red pepper, chicken broth, and garlic in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour over chicken. Seal bag. In a separate bag, combine pea pods, bell pepper, and broccoli. Place both bags into a third bag and freeze.
    To Cook After Freezing
    1. Add contents of chicken bag to slow cooker. Cook on low 8 hours or on high 6 hours. Stir in contents of vegetable bag. Cook on high 30-40 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp. Serve over cooked brown rice, if desired. Top with chopped cilantro and cashews, if desired.
    Recipe Notes

    I made this with only 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper because I was serving it to my kids, and it was still fantastic.  I did try this in the instant pot but it didn't have enough liquid for the IP to come to pressure.  I will continue testing, but for right now, this recipe is not suitable for cooking in a pressure cooker.
