There’s something about Chinese food that is always so comforting and everyone loves. This recipe is no exception. I like to save dishes like these, which are a little more involved with a few more steps than my usual weekday recipes, for Rosh Chodesh or even a birthday dinner. The sauce is absolutely delicious, but you definitely are going to want to sneak a few chicken poppers freshly fried, so good!

Ingredients

Cashew Chicken

  • 1 and 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1 cup Glicks Flour

  • 1 cup cornstarch

  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

  • 1 cup cold water

  • oil, for frying

  • 1 cup cashews

  • 12 ounces fresh broccoli florets, steamed

Sauce

For Serving (Optional)

  • steamed white rice

  • toasted sesame seeds, for garnishing

Directions

1.

In a large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, and salt. Transfer one cup to a second bowl; set aside.

2.

Add water to the first bowl; whisk well to combine and form a batter.

3.

Combine all sauce ingredients; set aside.

4.

In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat.

5.

Dredge chicken in remaining one cup dry flour mixture, then dip into batter. Let excess batter drip back into the bowl.

6.

Fry chicken in batches for two to three minutes on each side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

7.

Heat a second pan over medium-high heat. Add fried chicken, reserved sauce, and cashews. Mix well to coat. Cook for one to two minutes. Add broccoli; cook for one additional minute. Serve over steamed rice, if desired, garnished with toasted sesame seeds (if using).

Tips:

This dish is best enjoyed fresh. To warm, simply place, uncovered, in a 300-degree-Fahrenheit oven until heated through. Do not freeze.

Do you think I can freeze the already fried chicken nuggets without the sauce?
