Cashew Chicken

I tried Cashew Chicken for the first time the other day, and I knew I had to make a recipe for it. It is definitely a great comfort food recipe. If you are a fan on chicken recipes, you are going to want to add this to your list of easy dinner meals. The sauce in this chicken recipe adds so much flavor to the dish, and so easy to make! Just a few simple steps and dinner is ready for the whole family.

Easy Cashew Chicken Dinner

There are just a few easy steps for this recipe. I used a cast iron skillet to make this delicious chicken. When it comes to cooking dinner I love using my cast iron skillet. Cast iron cooks everything so well and easy to make in it. Lets start with the chicken, you will want to put some oil in the pan and put your cut up chicken in the skillet. Once you have the chicken cooking make sure to cook it until its cooked all the way.

Now on to the delicious sauce! The sauce in this recipe is really the star of the show. I like to add all of the ingredients together and mix it up well. When the sauce is mixed up you will want to add it to the cooked chicken while still on the stove. Keep cooking until everything is nice and hot.

What a beautiful dish you have just made! I promise the family is going to love this recipe. Easy chicken recipes are one of our go to’s in this house. There are different garnishes you can put on this recipe that would go great on this cashew chicken. The two main garnishes you can put on this recipe is green onions and sesame seeds. I even put hemp hearts on top of this dish. It may seem kind of weird but hemp hearts are so good for you. They have so many health benefits. Some other delicious chicken recipes you will love.

Delicious and easy meal prep.

You know I am a huge fan of meal prepping. This is another great meal to make for your meals throughout the week. Cauliflower rice is the perfect side to go with this low carb cashew chicken recipe. I honestly love to make cauliflower rice with most of my dinners. Here is how I usually make my cauliflower rice: I usually use frozen cauliflower rice, it is much easier to use. I get my skillet hot and add in the cauliflower then cook it until it starts to brown then I add in about a tablespoon of butter, pink Himalayan salt and garlic powder. I promise this is how you will want to cook your cauliflower rice every time.

Add some fancy chop sticks to your plated cashew chicken and cauliflower rice and serve it up to the family. I love to cook warm and delicious meals for my family. Family dinners are where the memories are made and my personal recommendation is to always make time to sit down at the end of the day and eat a meal together. You will thank yourself in the future.
