Cashew Chicken

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 4

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into cubes
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1 green bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1 orange bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1 onion cut into thick cubes
  • 1/2 cup Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp bottled minced garlic
  • 1 tsp bottled minced ginger or 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/3 cup honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup green onion sliced
  • 2 cups brown rice cooked

Instructions

  • Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Toss chicken and cornstarch in a bowl until chicken is well-coated. Add the chicken to the hot pan of oil and saute until the chicken is golden on all sides, stirring frequently.
  • Remove chicken and set aside. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to same pan.
  • Add the bell peppers and onion and saute 4-5 minutes, or until onion is translucent and peppers have begun to soften. Add the chicken back in to the pan and stir well.
  • Whisk the aminos, vinegar, garlic, ginger, honey, red pepper, and salt in a small bowl.
  • Pour the sauce into the pan and stir until everything is combined. Bring to a boil and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until sauce has thickened. Stir in the cashews and 3/4 of the green onions.
  • Serve over cooked brown rice and top with additional green onions, if desired

Notes

Note: to speed up prep time on this recipe, purchase pre-cut peppers and onions instead of cutting your own.
For a low carb, paleo, or Keto dish, serve with riced cauliflower instead of brown rice.
