Cashew Chicken

Over the past few weeks I’ve been getting asked to do a lot of one-pan meals, Keto friendly meals, and quick & easy chicken meals. Well, I think this one hit the nail on the head by being all 3!  And it’s a tasty one also so everyone can enjoy.

I’d decided that for 2018 I would try to find and develop recipes, with wholesome ingredients, to take the place of take-out food for our family.


So here is my first of many AT-Home recipes:

Cashew Chicken


  • 4 raw chicken thighs (boneless and skinless)
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/3 cup of cashews
  • 1 medium bell pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger (I used Fresh ginger)
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp green onion
  • 1 medium white onion
  • salt and pepper to taste

arrangement of food



  1. In a large pan, over low heat, toast Cashews until they turn lightly brown and become fragrant. (remove and set aside)
  2. Dice up chicken thighs, onion and bell pepper into 1 inch chunks.
  3. Turn up the heat on the stove to medium high heat, and add the chicken. Let that cook until chicken is no longer pink in color. (5 or so minutes)
  4.  When the chicken is no longer pink, add the onions, pepper, garlic, garlic sauce, ginger and salt & pepper. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes
  5. Add remaining ingredients (Soy Sauce, rice wine vinegar and cashews) and cook until all the liquid in the pan is completely gone.
  6. Serve with drizzled sesame oil and sesame seeds on top.  Enjoy!
