Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken cut into small, uniform pieces
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup Silk Creamy Cashew
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch potato starch works too
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Add both oils to a large wok, bring heat to a medium-high and allow the oils to start to shimmer. Now add the chicken carefully. Since the pan is hot the oil sizzles and can spit at you a bit. Sorry, only way to describe it. Here's hoping you don't get spit at. Use caution to avoid it.
  2. Cook the chicken until it's no longer pink, this should only take a few minutes at high heat, likely about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Toss in the cashews, cook for about 2 minutes, stirring to keep them from cooking too much on any one side.
  4. Add the red pepper, stir around for about 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Add the minced garlic, stir around for one minute.
  6. Now toss in the hoisin sauce, Silk Creamy Cashew and corn starch (be sure to make a slurry with a bit of Silk and corn starch in a mason jar, shake then add to the liquid so you avoid lumps) into the pan. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, until the sauce thickens.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Remove from heat and transfer to serving bowl.
  9. You can serve this with rice or noodles.
  10. Serve with a big old Creamy Cashew smile!
