Sir-Fried Chicken with Cashews

February 15, 2012
Stir-fried chicken with cashews is an easy weeknight meal with some flair.  Chicken breast pieces are sauteed with garlic and onion.  This recipe uses both dry chilies and Thai chili paste, depending on your tolerance  for spice, you can use one or the other or both.  To add freshness, chop some fresh cilantro and throw it in at the very end.  Serve stir-fried chicken with cashews on a bed of fluffy brown rice.
1 Onion (cut into wedges)
2 Dry chilies
1 tablespoon Thai chili paste (or less, depends on how spicy you can take)
Cashew Nuts, a handful
1 tablespoon Soya sauce,
1/2 tablespoon Dark soya sauce,
On medium flame, fry the garlic until fragrant and not brown.
Add in the chicken and cook until nearly done. Then, add in Thai chili paste and stir well. Add a bit less than recommended if you can’t take spiciness.
Add in the onion, cashew nuts, dry chilies and spring onion. Give it a good mix and cook for about 2 minutes.
Then, season with soya sauce. Add in dark soya sauce to sweeten the dish and give it a little bit of colour. Serve warm.
