This is a quick little recipe that is also pretty healthy!


4 chicken breast filets

2 cups raw cashews

3 cups sliced mushrooms

2 cups chopped onions

2 cups snow peas

1 tbsp chopped garlic

2 cups chicken broth

1 tbsp cornstarch

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup teriyaki sauce

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

chopped scallions for garnish


1. Slice the chicken into strips and season with salt and pepper.

2. Heat some oil in a large skillet or a wok if you have one.

3. Add the mushrooms, onion, and garlic to the wok and cook until the mushrooms start to soften (about 5 minutes).

4. Add the chicken to the wok and cook thru, about another 4-5 minutes.

5. Stir in the snow peas and cashews and cook for about 2 minutes more.

6. Mix the chicken broth, cornstarch, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and teriyaki together in a bowl until the cornstarch dissolves and pour the sauce over the chicken mixture. Allow the sauce to cook off for a few minutes until it starts to thicken.

7. Garnish with scallions. Serve over riced cauliflower.

That’s it! Enjoy!
