Cashew Chicken with Ginger Recipe

There are lots of recipes for cashew chicken, but my family thinks this one stands alone. We love the flavor from the fresh ginger and the crunch of the cashews. Another plus is it's easy to prepare.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small green pepper, cut into strips
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated fresh gingerroot
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 3/4 cup salted cashews
  • Hot cooked rice

Directions

  • 1. Mix first four ingredients until smooth. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry chicken until no longer pink. Remove from pan.
  • 2. In same pan, stir-fry mushrooms, pepper, green onions and ginger in remaining oil just until pepper is crisp-tender, 3-5 minutes. Stir in water chestnuts and broth mixture; bring to a boil. Cook and stir until sauce is thickened, 1-2 minutes.
  • 3. Stir in chicken; heat through. Stir in cashews; serve with rice. Yield: 6 servings.

"Incredibly good! The only thing I would change is to make a bit more of the sauce, especially if serving it over rice. Delicious!"

"This was very good. I would have liked the sauce to be a bit sweeter, and would recommend adding the green onions at the end, rather than cooking them for 5 minutes."

"Loved this recipe! I left the green peppers out and added 3 stalks of celery that I sauteed along with the other vegetables, only about 5 minutes. I also stir-fried the chicken in some additional soy sauce, which gave the chicken a wonderful flavor. Definitely a keeper!"
