Cashew Chicken

Cashew Chicken

This is very easy, full of flavour, healthy recipe. You just make it in few minutes with little effort.  This is a perfect weekend meal.

I love to cook in one skillet and tossing altogether fresh vegetables, chicken and sauce.Be that kind of cook who chopped all fresh vegetables and freeze them and whenever want to cook put them out just throwing into the pan. This is the best way to save time and energy. This technique is very useful, especially for working women.

This recipe is not only good for dinner, but its leftover taste is also good, even next day you can enjoy the same taste for healthy lunch. This is not a too much spicy recipe but you can feel free to add spoons of spice whenever you want like sriracha sauce of red pepper flakes etc.

Serves: 5 Servings
