Cashew Chicken

This dish was surprisingly flavorful and tasty. The ingredients are:

  • Chicken, 2 lbs
  • Garlic, 8 cloves, minced
  • Bell pepper, 2, sliced
  • Scallion, bunch, diced
  • Cashew nuts, 1 cup, unsalted
  • Mushrooms, 1 package, sliced
  • Fish sauce, 4 tablespoons
  • Oyster sauce, 4 tablespoons
  • Sugar, 4 tablespoons
  • White pepper, 1 tsp

The ingredients.

The first step is to cut the chicken into thin slices. This may be easier when it’s semi-frozen; here I’m slicing chicken thighs:

Slice the chicken.

Next, begin cooking the chicken in your pan of choice; I used a wok, as well as some coconut oil.

Cook the chicken.

As it cooks, you should begin adding some of the other ingredients: the garlic, the sugar, the pepper, and the fish sauce and oyster sauce.

Cook the chicken some more.

When the chicken is cooked, you can begin adding the vegetables: the pepper, the mushrooms, the scallions and (if you’ve decided to use any – I recommend it) the hot pepper.

Veg the chicken.

When you’ve cooked the vegetables to your desired texture, add in the cashew nuts, cook for another minute or two, and then you’re done!

Cashew the chicken – and then eat the chicken.
