Chicken with Cashew Nuts

Thai Cooking Classes with Easy Day Thailand


One of the Thai dish that never fail me when I introduce them to my foreigner friends is Chicken with cashew nuts, it's a simple dish and very easy to make.

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • Chicken with Cashew Nuts - Thai Cooking Classes with Easy Day Thailand
    Chicken with cashew nuts
    30 mls (2 tbsp) light soy sauce
  • 150g (¾ cup) chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 30 mls (2 tbsp) vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped.
  • 60g (½ cup) cashew nuts, deep-fried or roasted
  • 15 mls (1 tbsp) oyster sauce
  • 15 mls (1 tbsp) light soy sauce
  • 5 mls (1 tsp) chili paste
  • 5g (1 tsp) palm sugar (or normal sugar)
  • 40 g (1/3 cup) spring onions, cut into1 in. lengths
  • 10 small dried red chilies, deep fried or roasted (garnish)
  • coriander leaves, coarsely chopped (garnish)

  • Heat the oil in a wok and fry the chicken, turning occasionally for about 3-5 minutes or until tender. Place them to drain on paper towel.
  • Heat the oil in wok and fry garlic until begins to color. Add onions and cashew nuts then fry until all vegetables are done for about 1-2 minutes. Add chicken and season with oyster sauce, soy sauce, chili paste and sugar until well combined. Sprinkle spring onions and cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Serve sprinkled with coriander leaves and deep-fried dried chillies.

    You can try to make with beef instead of chicken which I really like though it better to cook it yourself, for some reason many times beef that they use in Thai restaurant here are very chewy.
