CASHEW CHICKEN

CASHEW CHICKEN

My favorite taste in this entire meal was the addition of sesame seed oil. It is super unique in flavor. I am always looking for quick recipes to make when I get home from a long day of work and traffic. This easy weeknight recipe is adapted from Keto Connect.



Ingredients

  • 3 raw chicken thighs boneless, skinless
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1/2 medium Green Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 tbsp green onions
  • 1/4 medium white onion
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Dice chicken thighs into 1 inch chunks. Cut onion and pepper into equally large chunks.
    Increase heat to high and add canola oil to pan.
  2. Once oil is up to temperature, add in the chicken thighs and allow them to cook through(about 5 minutes).
  3. Once the chicken is fully cooked. Add in the pepper, onions, garlic, chili garlic sauce and seasonings (ginger, salt, pepper). Allow to cook on high for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and cashews. Cook on high and allow the liquid to reduce down until it is a sticky consistency – there should not be excess liquid in the pan upon completing cooking.
  5. Serve in a bowl and drizzle with sesame oil.
