H’s first reaction to this: Oh this is really good! After accusing him for not liking all my cooking in general and him back tracking (lol), he listed all the reasons why I absolutely love this recipe!¬†The cashews are soft and flavourful, the chicken is moist and tender, and the vegs are vegs that I’ll willingly eat ūüėČ

Anyways, this cashew chicken with veggies is a takeout dish that I absolutely love ordering. There’s something about the¬†sweet and savoury sauce mixed with the cashew that just makes me happy. However, let’s be honest, takeout from a Chinese restaurant isn’t exactly the healthiest so why not make it at home where you can control what you put in it! There really isn’t even much cooking involved too! I literally chopped everything up and threw it onto a pan then into the oven. The most “cooking” involved with making this cashew chicken and veggies dish is making the sauce (aka everything in a pot and stir!)

Ingredients

Sauce

  • 6 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons flour or cornstarch
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup water plus more as needed to thin out sauce

Chicken and Vegetables

  • 2 large chicken breasts 1 inch pieces
  • sea salt and black pepper as needed
  • 3 large broccoli florets bite-sized pieces
  • 2 red bell pepper bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup roasted unsalted cashews
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder

Instructions

The Sauce

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together soy sauce, hoisin sauce, honey, garlic, ginger, flour and water until combined. Bring the sauce to a simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce thickens and is bubbling. Remove from heat and set aside. Be sure the sauce is not too thinned out as it will not stay on the ingredients when in the oven.

For the Chicken and Vegetables

  1. Preheat oven to 400¬įF.

  2. Season chicken with salt and black pepper. Drizzle 2-3 spoonfuls of sauce over the chicken coating well on both sides. 

  3. Place the broccoli florets, bell peppers, and cashews in a single layer around the chicken in your pan. 

  4. Drizzle spoonfuls of the sauce on top of everything. Save a few spoonfuls to drizzle on top of the pan after its done cooking.

  5. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

  6. Remove the pan from oven and drizzle with remaining sauce. Serve over rice or quinoa. Enjoy!
