Cashew Chicken

Tender white meat chicken, fresh vegetables, and crunchy nuts; all stirred up in a savory Asian sauce.
Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 20 MinTotal time: 30 Min


  • 1/4 c. soy sauce
  • 2 T. seasoned rice vinegar
  • 3 T. honey
  • 1/2 t. toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 t. chili garlic sauce
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 T. cornstarch
  • 2 T. coconut oil (or oil of choice)
  • 1/4 c. roasted cashews
  • 1 small crown broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 small Vidalia onion, sliced
  • 1 t. ginger paste
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, honey, sesame seeds, chile garlic sauce. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Season the cornstarch with the salt and pepper. Toss the chicken pieces in this mixture until coated. Remove chicken to the wok, discarding any excess cornstarch. Cook, stirring and flipping occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, about 4-5 minutes. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add the onion, broccoli, and red bell pepper to the wok and cook, stirring, until onion is softened and vegetables are crisp-tender, another 4-5 minutes. Stir in the ginger and minced garlic, stir and cook for a few seconds.
  4. Return the chicken to the wok, add the cashew and the reserved sauce. Cook and stir until heated through and the sauce has thickened and coated the stir fry.
  5. Serve with rice of choice.
