2 tbsp (30ml) vegetable oil, separated
2 ½ lbs (1130g) chicken tenders, cut into bite-sized chunks
¼ cup (30g) cornstarch
1 tsp (5ml) salt
freshly cracked pepper
1 red pepper, cut into thin strips
1 green pepper, cut into thin strips

1/4 cup (60ml) hoisin sauce
2 tbsp (30ml) soy sauce
1 tsp (5ml) rice wine vinegar
½ tsp (2.5ml) honey
3 garlic cloves, minced

½ cup (100g) cashews
2 scallions (white and green parts) sliced

Whisk together cornstarch, salt and pepper. Add chicken and toss to coat.

Mix whisk together the ingredients for the sauce. Prep the peppers, and the scallions and measure out the cashews.

Have all your components ready to go, and then heat 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a large non-stick pan or wok. Cook the chicken in batches (add fresh oil each time) until the chicken is golden brown on both sides and almost cooked through. Transfer to a bowl until all the chicken has been browned.

Then place the cooked chicken back into the wok, add the peppers and the sauce, continue to cook until chicken is cooked through.

Toss in cashews and scallions. Stir to combine and warm.

Transfer to a large serving platter and serve with rice or steamed broccoli drizzled with toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds.

    Hey Beth, this is a wonderful recipe it really encourages me to cook.
    Can I use white vinegar instead of the rice wine vinegar, since I am on a non-alcohol diet?
    Thank you, Beth!

  7. Making this for dinner next week for sure! Can’t wait to try 🤗

  8. Looks yummy!! I dont have rice wine vinegar, can I use red wine vinegar?? Thank you, I love your recipes

  9. When are some garden videos coming!

  10. You should try adding a splash of shaoxing wine when making Chinese food – gives it that authentic flavor!

  11. Looks tasty like always! I've got some chicken and was looking for inspiration 🙂

  12. Thank you so much for this delicious recipe Beth…..so quick and easy, I LOVE it…..wishing you well, take care XO

  13. What a perfect and easy dish!! Can’t wait to make this for when I break my fast tonight with my family. Thank u Beth

  14. What's the difference to cook this in a regular saucepan or in a wok? I've never used it, but it looks fun! Thanks Beth 😀

  15. bananashaveice

    This looks so yummy! I think I'll make it for dinner tonight. Thank you!!

  16. Thank you dear for clearing that doubt.

  17. Aquiles Tadeu Martineli

  18. Beth, will this recipe work with shrimp?

  19. ChefSqueeza 14

    Looks so so good! can't wait to give this one a go!

  20. onthe Wrightpath

    This reminds me of your feed me fast chicken! Loved that recipe-will def try this one!

  21. Wow I will try this recipe ….I liked it much …thanks for sharing a tangy delicious chicken cashew recipe. Awesome…👌👌👍💐

  22. Tony JA Leonzon

    Hello Maam Beth, I've been watching your videos full of elegant foods yet simple to make and I admire that kind of cooking enthusiasm. I want to ask if you have other endive recipes that you would like to share. Thank you Maam Beth and keep smiling 🙂

  23. Awesome! I would add cubed deep fried tofu on this and serve it along crab or seafood fried rice and it'll feed a crowd. Great job, Beth! 😁👍

  24. Hello Beth, instead of using cornstarch to coat the chicken pieces can we substitute it with ground almonds (almond flour) for a healthier option?

  25. denicekimberly

    This looks delisted. We’ve got two vegetarians and two meat eaters in the house and I think this will be great for us because I can easily sub tofu for the vegetarians using the same technique 👍

  26. I really like this, I am making it tonight. I love that it’s quick and won’t make the house get hot. Question can I purchase the original subscription box? That’s the only one I never got and I would love to add it to my collection. Last month literally made me scream like a kid 😂

  27. Winnie Dolderer

    Looks delicious!

  28. LOVELY! Thanks for a quick & easy recipe, great for those of us fasting at the moment!

  29. Hi Beth, Do you use Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar or just regular RWV? Thanks 😉

  30. Byron Chandler

  32. I really want to eat this IPad now!
