My recipe for instant pot cashew chicken is the closest I coüld get to the real deal. Many healthy cashew chicken recipes oüt there have a bünch of veggies added (which is great! düh!). Büt when I’m craving those takeoüt cartons of cashew chicken, it’s the chicken, cashews and rice I want, yoü know?! I wanted to have a go-to recipe that I know will satisfy those cravings in a healthy, Paleo way so being tempted to eat crappy isn’t even worth it!
