Stir Fried Chicken Cashew Nuts

It is winter season and I am having my first experience with negative temperatures. So, I keep two things close to me, one of them is sea food and the other one is nuts. My nuts are obviously attached to me but I am talking about almonds, cashew nuts, pecans, pistachio and various other types of nuts.

Craving Chinese food recently made me want to make one of my favorite recipes of all time which is Stir Fried Chicken Cashew Nuts.




I always have a love and hate relationship with Chinese food. Love it because it is delicious and hate it because it takes so long to prepare it and not so long to eat.

INGREDIENTS:

500 gram boneless chicken, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

1/2 cup of cashew nuts, salted roasted preferred

4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

1.5 tablespoons of chopped ginger

4-6 green onions sliced (keep the whites and the greens separated)

1 bell pepper of any color, cut into cubes

1/2 teaspoon of red chili flakes

1 cup chicken broth

2 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon vinegar

1 teaspoon sugar

1.5 teaspoons of cornflour




Marinate the chicken in a teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of black pepper.



Finely chop the ginger and garlic.



Heat 3 tablespoons of vegetable or canola oil in a pan and stir fry the chicken, garlic and ginger for 5 minutes until the chicken changes it color like the people in your life and is properly cooked.



Take out the chicken once it is cooked and chop the rest of your vegetables.




Now in the same pan or wok add the mushrooms and the sliced white part of thegreen onion and stir fry for 1 minute. 

Add the cashew nuts and red chili flakes.

Let these fry for a 2-3 minutes.





Meanwhile in a bowl mix, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, chicken broth and flour.

Add bell pepper to the wok, fry it for a minute and add the chicken with the sauce you just made.




Fry until your desired thickness of the sauce.

I had a some bean sprouts in the fridge so I added them as well.

Give everything a good stir and by this point Stir Fried Chicken Cashew Nuts is ready to serve.



Serve this with steamed brown or white rice or boiled noodles or even fried rice or noodles. You can hank me later.
