Chicken & cashews with honey & soy

Method

  • Toss the cashews in a non-stick pan with no oil until golden. Remove and set aside. 
  • At the same time, whisk the egg white until light and fluffy. Add the chicken and toss until well coated. 
  • In another bowl, combine the cornflour with a little salt. Then add the chicken mixture and toss well. 
  • Heat a little oil in a hot wok (or large non-stick pan) and seal the chicken in 2-3 lots, keeping the pieces separate. 
  • Wipe out the wok (or pan), heat a little fresh oil and gently sauté the red onion, capsicum and carrots until crisp-tender, regularly tossing. 
  • Then add the soy and honey with ½ cup stock and the ginger. Stir and briefly cook. 
  • Return the chicken, toss well and cook for about 5 mins until ready. 
  • Then add the snowpeas, bean shoots and cashews. Toss to heat through, adding a little more stock if needed.
