Cashew Chicken Stir-fry

If you are searching for a delicious nutty and super delicious stir fry with chicken, you should definitely give a try to this incredible cashew chicken. I have tasted this cashew chicken in a chinese restaurant recently,immediately i have completely fallen in love with this yummy dish. Last week, i wanted to recreate the same chicken dish at home and got the famous Hoisin sauce for making this dish.

Am always a bit skeptical because of the smell of this hoisin sauce and always fear that the dish is going to taste the way as the sauce smells. Thank god, fortunately it never happened, this store bought hoisin sauce gives a wonderful flavour to this dish. Enjoy this nutty chicken stir fry with a bowl of rice, am damn sure you will definitely have a filling and fantastic lunch or dinner.Sending to Divya's The Master Chef Contest.

2 cups Chicken breast (sliced thinly as bite sized pieces)

2tsp Sriracha chilly sauce

2nos Onions (sliced lengthwise)
1no Carrots (chopped as round pieces)
2nos Green bellpeppers (cubed)
