Cashew Chicken Recipe

Cashew Chicken Recipe

This Cashew ChickenRecipe is a version of the original Oriental dish tailored to fit the Filipino Palate. Thinly sliced chicken breast is coated with egg and cornstarch then stir fried until crispy and golden brown. An array of colors brought about by the different vegetables makes this dish more appealing. Let’s not forget the roasted cashew nuts that adds flavor and texture to the dish.

This is best eaten with any kind of rice. However, I recommend that you have Yang Chow Fried Rice to go with this Cashew Chiken Recipe. If you follow this recommendation, I am sure that your taste buds will be feasting with the nice flavors that are exploding in your m0uth.

By the way, you should not be intimidated by the image. I know that it looks pretty and colorful. Don’t think that this will be hard to make even by yourself. All you need to do is follow the procedure and watch the video of this Cashew Chicken Recipe. Like the others who did, You will be amazed with the result. Happy cooking!

  1. Before you cook the chicken, toss the cashew nuts in the oil and sauté for a minute. Remove them, and then cook the chicken. This will ensure that the cashews will stay crunchy when added to the recipe.
