3 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
3 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup chicken broth

To assemble:
Place chicken in a quart-size ziploc freezer bag.  Remove air & seal.  Place broccoli, carrots & cashews in a gallon-size ziploc freezer bag.  Remove air & seal.  In another quart-size freezer bag, combine remaining ingredients to create sauce.  Remove air & seal.  Place all 3 bags into a gallon size bag - seal & label.

To prepare:
Remove chicken & sauce mixture from larger bag & thaw.  Layer chicken, then vegetable & cashew mixture in crockpot.  Pour sauce over chicken.  Add additional water or broth if necessary until mixture is almost completely covered.  Cook 2-4 hours on high or 4-8 hours on low.
