Combine the flour and pepper in a Ziploc plastic bag. Add the chicken and shake to coat with the flour mixture. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer the chicken to a slow cooker.
Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, garlic, ginger, water chestnuts, and pepper flakes in a small bowl and pour over the chicken. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. Stir in the cashews. Serve over rice.
