Chicken with Cashew Nuts - Recipe

Chicken with Cashew Nuts - Recipe

Makeup is not my only obsession. I am a huge foodie and Chinese cuisine just makes my mouth water anytime. Of all the Chinese treats my husband ends up having, my favourite to lavish him with is this Chicken with Cashew Nuts..mmm-hmm! So today I am sharing with y’all the delicious Chicken with Cashew Nuts from my recipe book.

Chicken with Cashew Nuts - Recipe

500g chicken (sliced)
2 tbsp olive oil
salt – to taste
1 tsp white pepper
2 tbsp cornflour
1 tbsp garlic (chopped)
2 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp chili sauce
2 tbsp light soya sauce
2 tbsp dark soya sauce
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp sugar
½ tsp chili flakes
1 capsicum (sliced)
1 green onion (chopped)
1 cup chicken stock
20-30 roasted cashewnuts
1 tsp sesame oil

In a bowl mix together salt, white pepper and cornflour.  Add in the chicken.
Heat olive oil in a pan, add in the garlic and when it sizzles put in the chicken. Stir fry on high heat. When the chicken turns white add sugar, chili flakes, ketchup, chili sauce, soya sauce, vinegar and mix well.
Add the capsicum and carrot and stir fry for a minute or two. Pour in the chicken stock, let it come to a boil and then thicken the gravy with cornflour paste (as required).
Add in the cashew nuts and spring onion and give a stir. Drizzle sesame oil and mix well. Serve immediately with boiled rice.

Chinese food is pretty simple to make and tastes wonderful in the end. Do try this mouth-watering recipe at home and let me know how many people you made happy. ;)
