This week is sharing with us “Cashew Chicken”

The cashews add a sweet crunch to this savory meal…I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

Marinade ingredients

let chicken marinate for 1/2 hour – I like to slice my chicken into angled slices for quick cooking.

A roux- a thickening agent…this is what makes the sauce have a “gravy like” texture.

Sliced carrots and snow peas

Stir fry chicken, then add veggies- then roux with remaining sauce ingredients.

Add sauce -let simmer until thickened, then add cashews.
