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)
5tbsp Hoisin sauce
2tsp Sriracha chilly sauce
1/2cup Water
1tbsp White vinegar
6nos Garlic cloves (minced)
1/2cup Cashews
Salt
2nos Onions (sliced lengthwise)
1no Carrots (chopped as round pieces)
2nos Green bellpeppers (cubed)
3tbsp Cornflour
Salt
1tsp White pepper powder
2tbsp Green onions or coriander leaves

In a bowl, take the cornflour,vinegar, hoisin sauce,sriracha chilly sauce and mix everything well until they turn as a thick sauce,keep aside.

In a wok, heat enough oil,fry the minced garlic and cashews together until they turns golden brown.Now add the sliced onions,carrots,cubed bellpeppers and saute for few minutes (take care not to overcook)

Meanwhile mix the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and add to the wok. cook for few minutes.

Now add the already prepared sauce and cook for 2-3minutes until the sauce turns thick.. Finally add the chopped coriander leaves or green onions.
