Cashew Chicken3 Comments

I love any type of dish that I can serve jasmine rice with. If you have not tried jasmine rice, I suggest you do it now. Drop everything you are doing and go buy some. Ever since my mom discovered it at Wegman’s a few years ago, it is the only rice I like to eat now. So this leads me to always be on the hunt for something to serve the rice with.

I would have to say that Blair is not the biggest fan of any type of stir fried dish unless I really disguise the veggies, which clearly is impossible in a stir fry dish. If it has a delicious sauce, then he will claim it as a winner. This particular dish we both enjoyed, the sauce was light and the cashews add a nice crunch on top. And of course the jasmine rice is always delicious. I have really been striving to get my 5 a day so this meal helps in that department. If you are looking for a healthy, easy, and quick weeknight meal, make this soon!

Cashew Chicken
(Printable Recipe)

What you’ll need:
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup mushrooms
1/2 red pepper, sliced thin
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup shelled edamame
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup unsalted cashews
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce

What you’ll do:
Heat a skillet on medium heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add mushrooms and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then sprinkle cornstarch on chicken pieces and make sure each piece is somewhat coated, this will give it a nice texture. Add the remaining olive oil to the skillet and add chicken. Brown on both sides until cooked, about 5 minutes per side. Add garlic, red pepper, edamame (I didn’t have any), half of the green onions and cashews and stir for about 30 seconds. Turn heat to medium low. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce and honey. Pour into skillet, coating chicken and vegetables. Serve with jasmine rice.

    Jasmine rice is really tasty! I love Thai food and my sister makes a recipe where you put coconut milk over the jasmine rice with a some kind of spicy sauce! It’s really delicious. I like making ethnic food at home because you can control the ingredients!
