  • Cut your 1kg chicken thighs (or breast) into bite-sized pieces and cook.

  • Combine all of your ingredients into the sauce bowl.
  • Prepare an easy sweet and savoury stir-fry sauce: ½ cup chicken broth, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 soy sauce, 2 Tbsp honey, 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • Grab your large pan (or wok), turn it on med/high heat and heat 1 Tbsp of oil. Once your oil starts to get hot, you can add your chicken in a single layer. Make sure your chicken is browned and mix in the rest of your chicken as needed. Once cooked, remove the chicken from your pan and set it aside.
  • Add some more oil and butter and throw in your mixture of veges. Cook until your veges are crisp and tender.
  • Add your chicken back in the pan and add 4 cloves of garlic minced and 1 tsp of fresh ginger minced and stir it in.
  • Throw in some cashews and pour your sauce into the pan and bring it up to your boil. Turn down the heat and let your stir-fry simmer until the sauce thickens and combine the remaining ingredients until it’s all incorporated.
  • Serve your stir fry with your favourite side such as brown rice, white rice or some noodles.
