Food and Life with a Punch of Flavor

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts, diced into bite size pieces
  • ½ onion, sliced
  • 1 head broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • 8 oz can of sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • Green onions and sesame seeds for garnish (optional!)
  • For the sauce:
  • ½ cup soy sauce (tamari if you want gluten free)
  • ¼ cup veggie broth
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch

Directions

  • Heat a wok or large pan over medium high to high heat with some vegetable oil
  • Season your diced chicken with salt and pepper (not too much! The soy sauce has a lot of sodium)
  • Add your diced chicken to your hot wok/pan and cook until the chicken is JUST cooked through
  • Remove the chicken to a plate and add your vegetables (onion and broccoli) to the wok/pan
  • Saute for a few minutes until the onions have softened
  • Meanwhile, make your sauce
  • Add all the sauce ingredients into a blender and blend until thoroughly combined
  • Add your chicken back in with your veggies, and add your water chestnuts
  • Pour your sauce in, and simmer this for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened
  • If your sauce isnt thickening enough for your preference, create a slurry by stirring together 1 teaspoon of cornstarch and 2 teaspoons of water together in a small bowl. Add your slurry to the chicken and veggie mixture and simmer until the sauce has thickened further
  • Add your cashews and stir to combine
  • Top with green onions and sesame seeds as you serve (optional!)
