Cashew Chicken with Snow Peas & Jasmine Rice

  • 1 TBL toasted sesame oil
  • ½ lb pkg chicken breast strips
  • 3 TBL salted cashews
  • 1 oz fresh ginger
  • garlic
  • 4 oz snow peas
  • 1 oz scallions
  • 5 oz jasmine rice
  • salt & pepper
  • neutral oil
  • white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar

1. Cook rice

In a small saucepan, combine rice, 1¼ cups water, and ½ teaspoon salt; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until rice is tender and water is absorbed, about 17 minutes. Keep covered until ready to serve.

2. Prep ingredients

Meanwhile, trim scallions, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Halve snow peas crosswise. Finely chop 2 teaspoons each of garlic and peeled ginger. Coarsely chop 1 tablespoon cashews and reserve for step 6; leave remaining cashews whole. Pat chicken dry and season all over with salt and pepper.

3. Stir-fry chicken

Heat 1 tablespoon neutral oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add chicken in a single layer and cook until just browned, about 3 minutes (chicken will not be cooked through).

4. Stir-fry veggies

To skillet with chicken, add snow peas and scallions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are just tender and blistered, and chicken is cooked through, 2–3 minutes.

5. Finish stir-fry

Reduce skillet heat to medium. Add chopped ginger and garlic and remaining whole cashews; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1–2 minutes. Stir in Hoisin sauce, sesame oil, ¼ cup water, 1 teaspoon vinegar, and sugar. Bring to a simmer and cook until sauce is thickened and coats chicken and veggies. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

6. Finish & serve

Fluff rice with a fork. Serve rice topped with cashew chicken. Garnish with reserved chopped cashews. Enjoy!
