You might want to try;
- 1 Pound Boneless chicken breast (2 cups; cut into small size)
- ¾ Cup Roasted unsalted cashews
- ½ Cup Red bell (chopped)
- 2 Green onions (cut into rings)
- ½ Cup Onion (chopped)
- 1 Cup Vegetables (I used broccoli and zucchini, use any vegetables of your choice)
- 2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
- 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
- 2 Tablespoons Rice vinegar (optional)
- 2 Tablespoons Vegetable oil
- 2 Tablespoons Honey
- 2 Tablespoons Soy sauce
- 2 Tablespoon sesame oil
- Salt and pepper
Season the chicken with salt and pepper, add cornstarch and coat very well. You can use a Ziploc bag for this process.
Heat the oils and cook the coated chicken on both sides for about 3-5 minutes depending on how big the chicken. You don’t need to fully cook the chicken because you’re going to continue the cooking, later on, 80% is okay. Remove and set aside.
In the same skillet, add the onion, green onions, bell pepper, zucchini, broccoli (or any vegetables you’re using), and garlic. Stir and cook for about 3minutes or until the vegetables are tender and crispy.
Return the chicken and roasted cashew, stir and continue to cook.
In a small bowl, add rice vinegar (if you’re using), honey, soy sauce, ginger, and whisk. Add the sauce to the chicken mixture and combine. Let the sauce simmer for about 1-2 minutes or more. Check the seasoning and adjust if necessary.
