Cashew Chicken Stir-fry
Here is a new recipe I made up tonight. It turned out very good. My husband loved it, and even my kids liked it.
Cashew Chicken Stir- fry
1 lrg chicken breast, cut in small pieces
salt, pepper, garlic powder
3 heads of broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 lb mushrooms, sliced
1 cup beef broth
1 tsp corn starch
1/2 cup salted, roasted cashews
Generously sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic powder over raw chicken. Heat frying pan with 1 tbsp oil over Medium High Heat. Cook chicken pieces in the pan until they are just done. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside. Add 2 tbsps oil, and the broccoli to the pan. Sprinkle the sugar and salt over the brocolli and stir once. Then add the mushrooms. Stir fry the vegetables until the broccoli is tender/crisp and the mushrooms are tender. Add the beef broth and bring to a boil. Sprinkle the corn starch over the cooked chicken and mix it together, then add the chicken back into the frying pan. Cook the mixture long enough for the sauce to tighten a little bit. Remove from heat and add the cashews. Serve over rice, immediately.
