How to Make Delicious Cashew Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Toss chicken with corn starch making sure its coated well.

    Heat the oil in a wok over medium high heat. ( Or can use a large skillet.)
  2. When oil is hot, brown the chicken on all sides, in batches so not to over crowd. Once all is cooked, set aside.

    Add the garlic, ginger, and hot pepper flakes to the pan and stir fry for a few minutes. Add most of the green onion, save some for garnish.
  3. Add the vinegar, Hoisin sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce, chicken and chicken broth to the pan. Mix everything well. Bring to a simmer and cook gently for a minute or two until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thick and glossy. Now, I taste and adjust any seasonings if need be.
  4. Add the cashews and a few dashes of sesame oil, stir. Now add toasted sesame seed and remainder of green onions.

    Serve over rice.
