One Pot Cashew Chicken Rice makes the perfect easy weeknight meal. Best of all, everything cooks up in only ONE pan in just 30 minutes. Plus Instant Pot instructions.
With back to school starting next week for us, quick and easy meals are going to be happening a lot around here. To help me get through those busy weeknights, I am always relying on lots of skillet, slowcooker and sheet pan meals.
There’s just something so satisfying about a delicious meal coming together in just ONE PAN. Dishes are my least favorite chore so having minimal pots and pans to clean up is always a bonus.
Since this One Pot Teriyaki Rice with Chicken has been such a hit, I thought I would add another one pot spin to my son’s favorite takeout dish.
My son loves loves loves cashews and especially Cashew chicken. This 3o minute One Pot Cashew Chicken Rice has all those same flavors as his restaurant favorite cooked all in ONE pan – including the rice.
It’s super easy to customize with your favorite veggies.
For this recipe I used carrots, red and green bell peppers. Feel free to add broccoli or anything else you have on hand.
Easy, flavorful and perfect for busy weeknights.
And if you’ve had your eye on one, there’s a giveaway happening over on Instagram.
HELPFUL AND MAKE-AHEAD-TIPS FOR THIS ONE POT CASHEW CHICKEN RICE:
- Chop the vegetables ahead of time the day before and store in a clear zip-top freezer bag in the fridge
- Use minute rice if you’re short on time – just remember to adjust the covered cooking time to 5-10 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Brown rice works as well but will take longer, about 30 minutes, covered.
- Make the sauce ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the fridge
