Cashew chicken and vegetables

Method

  • In a bowl add the chicken and all the ingredients, but only 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. 
  • Mix very well, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or -even better- overnight. 
  • In another bowl, mix all the ingredients for the sauce until homogenized. Set aside until needed.
  • Take the chicken out of the refrigerator and let it sit for 15 minutes to come to room temperature. 
  • Place a wok over high heat until it gets very hot, and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. 
  • Add the chicken to the wok and sauté -without mixing- for 2 minutes. 
  • Then, flip over and sauté for another 3-4 minutes, until it is cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken from the wok and transfer it to a bowl. 
  • Add 1 more tablespoon olive oil to the wok along with the mushrooms and the celery.
  • Sauté until the water released by the mushrooms is evaporated. 
  • Remove them from the wok and transfer to the bowl with the chicken.
  • Add the last 1 tablespoon olive oil to the wok and sauté the pepper. 
  • After 1 minute, add the zucchini and half of the cashews. 
  • Sauté until the vegetables are slightly tender and add the sauce, the chicken, and the mushrooms. 
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes, mixing well until the sauce thickens.
  • If you want, serve with rice, the remaining cashews, and finely chopped parsley.

Tip

Place the chicken pieces over the whole surface of the wok, creating a layer with the chicken.
