CASHEW CHICKEN

INGREDIENTS

¾ cup of unsalted cashews

¼ cup of water

2 teaspoons of cornstarch

4 tablespoons hoisin sauce

1 tablespoon of soy sauce

1 ½ lb boneless, skinless chicken breast

½ teaspoon of salt

¼ teaspoon of black pepper

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

6 garlic cloves (minced)

8 scallions

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

¼ teaspoon sesame oil

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the cashews on a baking sheet in a single layer. Toast in the oven until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Set aside; they will crisp up as they cool.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce: in a small bowl, whisk together the water, cornstarch, hoisin sauce, and soy sauce. Set aside.
  4. Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper and toss to coat evenly.
  5. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil over high heat until very hot. Add half of the chicken to the skillet and stir-fry until lightly browned but not cooked through, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  6. Add the remaining tablespoon vegetable oil to the skillet; then add the remaining chicken, garlic and white parts of the scallions. Stir-fry until the chicken is lightly browned but not cooked through, about 3 minutes. Return the first batch of chicken to the pan. Turn the heat down to medium and add the rice vinegar; cook until evaporated, about 30 seconds.
  7. Add the sauce mixture to the chicken; cook, tossing, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is nicely thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Stir in the scallion greens, cashews and sesame oil. Serve immediately.

FRIED RICE

INGREDIENTS

½ tablespoon of vegetable oil

2 eggs (beaten)

3 cups of white rice (cooked)

½ cup of carrots (diced)

½ cup of frozen green peas

½ cup of corn

½ tablespoon of sesame oil

1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon of salt

½ tablespoon green onions (chopped)

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon sesame seeds (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oil in a large wok or skillet over medium high heat for one minute. Add beaten eggs, and stir until scrambled and cooked through, yet still tender.

  3. Add carrots, corn, and peas to the pan. Continuously stir for 2 minutes to cook and evenly mix and distribute the ingredients.
  4. Add sesame oil, salt, and Italian seasoning, and keep stirring, for about 1 minute. Add Worcestershire sauce and green onions at the end and stir to combine.
  5. Serve hot and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
