Stir fry recipe-Stir fried Chicken with cashew nuts and chilli

Another stir fry recipe and one of the famous Thai foods. Actually stir-fried chicken fried with cashew nuts and chilli is not authentic Thai food. We adopt this dish from Chinese cuisine, but it seems that many people have confuse and misunderstood that this stir fry recipe is Thai. I think the reason is that this dish is easy to cook and many Thai restaurants abroad serve it. Anyway, if you love this dish, here is an easy recipe for you to cook.

Stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts and chilli
Stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts and chilli
1 cup Chicken breast, slice
2 tbs. Sugar
1 tbs. All purpose flour
1/2 tbs. Soy sauce
1/2 tbs. Cashew nuts
5-6 Dried chilli
3 cloves Garlic, crush
1/4 cup Oil
2 ts. Shaohsing wine (optional)
  1. Marinate chicken breast with sugar, soy sauce and all purpose flour. You can add some Shaohsing wine if you have.
  2. Put oil in the wok. Fried the cashew nuts with low heat until cooked. Take them out.
  3. Sliced dried chilli 1 cm. (about 1/4 inch.) and fried for 1-2 minutes. Take them out.
  4. Fried crush garlic for about 15 seconds. Add marinated chicken and fried until 90 percent cooked. Add fried dried chilli and fried cashew nuts. Cook until the chicken is done. 
You can also add some sliced spring onion, mushrooms or sliced bell pepper. This dish, like most stir-fried recipes, should not leave until cold. You should eat them while they are still hot. If you leave it for too long, the cashew nuts will not be crispy. I would suggest you to prepare all the ingredients and just cook about 15-30 minutes before serve. Enjoy!
