Cashew Chicken


1 boneless & skinless chicken breast, about 10 oz., cut into small cubes

2 tablespoons oil

5 slices peeled ginger

1 small green bell pepper, about 4 oz., cut into small square pieces

1/4 onion, cut into small square pieces

1/2 cup unsalted cashew nuts


1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon corn starch

1/2 teaspoon rice wine, optional


1/2 tablespoon oyster sauce

3/4 teaspoon soy sauce

3 tablespoons water

3 dashes white pepper

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon rice wine, optional

1/4 teaspoon sesame oil

Salt to taste


Marinate the chicken meat with the baking soda for 15 minutes and then rinse the chicken thoroughly. Please make sure that the chicken is properly rinsed clean of the baking soda.

Pat the chicken meat dry with paper towels and then marinate with the rice wine and corn starch, for 15 minutes.

Mix all the Sauce ingredients together and set aside.

Heat up a wok with 1 tablespoon of oil and stir-fry the chicken meat until the color turns white or half-cooked. Dish out and set aside.

Add another 1 tablespoon of cooking oil into the wok and add in the ginger slices, bell pepper and onion.

Stir-fry until you smell the peppery aroma from the green peppers and add the chicken meat back in.

Add in the Sauce and stir continuously until the chicken meat is cooked and well coated with the sauce. Add salt to taste, if you like.

Add in the cashew nuts and do a few quick stirs. Dish out and serve the Cashew Chicken hot with steamed white rice.
