DIY: The Delicious Cashew Chicken

27일 전

Cashew chicken is a fried chicken chunks combine with roasted cashews. This flavorful Chinese dish is a popular takeout in chinese restaurant, and the good thing is you can make it at home too, easy, tasty and less oily.


For this recipe, I have only used ingredients at hand. Rice vinegar is originally added in this dish, but since it’s not available in my pantry, I replace it with 3 tbsp of Oyster sauce and 2 tbsp of Soy sauce and it’s still delicious. Feel free to add chili if you want it spicy.



  • Chicken breast 400 g (bite size pieces)
  • Egg
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • All purpose flour (½ cup)
  • Oyster sauce (3 tbsp)
  • Soy sauce (2 tbsp)
  • Red capsicum
  • Green onion
  • Cashew nuts (unsalted)
  • Oil


  • Roast the cashew nut for a minute or until slightly brown and set aside. Mixing it spontaneously to avoid getting burned.


  • Combine the beaten egg into the chicken and mix to coat all the pieces.


  • Dip the chicken into the flour


  • Shallow Fry the chicken pieces in to a medium heat pan with oil. Fry them in batches, Avoid overloading the pan so it doesn’t get watery.


  • Drain them in a kitchen towel to absorb the oil and set aside.


  • In the same pan, adding a bit of oil, Saute garlic and onion until fragrant


  • Add the Red capsicum and Stir fry for few minutes


  • Add the oyster sauce and soy sauce, Mix well until the sauce thickens


  • Adding the fried chicken pieces and roasted cashew nuts. Stir fry for few minutes.


  • Season with salt and ground black pepper and remove from heat.

  • lastly , Add the Green onion for a crispy texture.


  • Serve warm with a bed of rice. Enjoy!

You can add more vegetables for additional flavor and texture.

This saucy and very tasty chicken is packed in protein. A popular chinese take away made easy. Try this recipe and make your chicken breast interesting.
