Cashew Chicken

This dish of tender stir-fried chicken and roasted cashews in garlic sauce tastes just like take-out, only better. You don’t need a wok — just a large nonstick skillet — and, aside from the chicken, the only chopping involves some garlic and scallions. The rest comes out of bottles and jars. The only way to mess it up is to overcook the chicken so  have all your ingredients prepped before you start cooking and don’t cut the chicken pieces too small (they’ll cook too fast). Also, be sure to use a high-quality hoisin sauce.

Ingredients
Ingredients
  • unsalted cashews: 0.75 cup (roasted)

  • freshly ground black pepper: 0.25 tsp
  • vegetable oil: 2 Tbsp
  • garlic: 6 clove (minced)
  • scallions: 8 piece (1 bunch, white and green parts separated, each cut into 1-inch pieces)
  • rice vinegar: 2 Tbsp
  • hoisin sauce: 4 Tbsp (best quality, use gluten-free if needed)
  • soy sauce: 1 Tbsp (use gluten-free if needed)
