This is the kinda meal that we all wanted to have a whole batch- just for ourselves, because it’s that GOOD.

Spicy cashew chicken is seriously everything!

It makes me feel like sitting on the floor, pretending like I’m eating take out,Β Gilmore Girl style.

I’ve never had take out, but I feel like I would reach a new status of cool with that brown box in my lap and chop sticks in hand.

But, since I’m basic, I had it in a bowl at the table with chopsticks instead.😜

This meal is exciting enough on it’s own, but if you think you will still be hungry after this, then serving this dish with a pot of rice is always a good idea- that’s our dinner plans tonight. πŸ™‚

Ingredients
Chicken
Sauce
Instructions
  1. Cut chicken breasts into 1" cubes. Heat a skillet over medium heat on the stove and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook chicken in skillet for about 5-8 minutes (stirring on occasion) until just cooked through- when a piece is cut in half, there won't be any pink left.
  2. Chop broccoli and onion into bite size pieces and transfer chicken to a plate. Add broccoli and onion into skillet and cook with a drizzle of olive oil until just soft, but not mushy.
  3. In a blender puree ingredients for sauce until completely smooth, then pour over chicken. Stir in cashews, sesame seeds, and cilantro and serve.

    Hi Kaylie, What can I use instead of Coconut Aminos? Very difficult to come by in SA, and very expensive πŸ™ Love your recipes. Thank you xx

    Oh my, this recipe was so delicious!! Thank you so much for posting. Even my non-restricted hubby loved it. πŸ™‚ I had to leave out the pepper flakes for myself so he just added some to his plate. πŸ™‚

    Also, Braggs amino acid’s are a great substitute for soy sauce and half the sodium. Taste just like soy sauce in my opinion. I was thinking of using that instead of the coconut amino’s. The coconut amino’s I found had sugar in them and were sweet. Anyway, just my thoughts on the matter. I haven’t made the recipe yet but I am really looking forward to it.

    Oh. My. God. This was so good. My wife and I are raving about it. The sauce is absolutely amazing. We used arrowroot flour instead of tapioca. I also toasted the cashews before adding them to the dish. I’m wondering what it would taste like if you substituted peanuts for the cashews? Hmmm…
