Chicken Cashew Stir Fry

Stir-fries are actually so easy to whip up and yet they're packed full with lots of goodness! This dish is so yummy and packed full with flavor. A much healthier option than your local chinese take-out! You can also throw in whatever veggies you have in the fridge.

Ingredients:

1 red chilli

4 tsp Tamari

1 tbsp freshly grated ginger

1 crushed garlic clove

2 spring onions

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp coconut oil

2 diced carrots

2 chopped zucchini/courgette

1 red pepper

4 organic chicken breasts chopped into bite size pieces

100g cashew nuts

A handful of freshly chopped cilantro/corriander

2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)

Salt and Pepper to season

I serve this with brown rice. But noodles go really well with it too! I love soba or rice noodles. Follow the instructions on the packet to cook this separately.

  1. Mix the tamari with the ginger, garlic and sesame oil and chilli
  2. Heat the coconut oil on a large saucepan
  3. Once the oil has heated, throw the courgettes, pepper and carrots onto the pan and stir-fry for a few minutes
  4. Pour a tablespoon of your tamari sauce mixture into the pan and stir well
  5. Add the chicken, spring onions, cashews and the rest of the sauce. Stir it all together.
  6. Keep stirring for about 7 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Test this by removing a piece of the chicken from the pan and cutting it in half. If there's any pinkness in the centre, continue to cook until the chicken is white in the centre.
  7. Once ready to serve, top with the fresh corriander/cilantro and sesame seeds
