Ingredients Related Tips

  • 3 chicken breasts, diced into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1 head broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • 8 oz can of sliced water chestnuts, drained (optional)
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • Green onions and sesame seeds for garnish 
    For the sauce:
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce 
  • 1/4 cup veggie broth
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch


  1. Heat a wok or large pan over medium high to high heat with some vegetable oil
  2. Season your diced chicken with salt and pepper (not too much! The soy sauce has a lot of sodium)
  3. Add your diced chicken to your hot wok/pan and cook until the chicken is JUST cooked through
  4. Remove the chicken to a plate and add your vegetables (onion and broccoli) to the wok/pan
  5. Saute for a few minutes until the onions have softened
  6. Meanwhile, make your sauce... Add all the sauce ingredients into a blender and blend until thoroughly combined
  7. Add your chicken back in with your veggies, and add your water chestnuts
  8. Pour your sauce in, and simmer this for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened
  9. If your sauce isn't thickening enough for your preference, create a "slurry" by stirring together 1 teaspoon of cornstarch and 2 teaspoons of water together in a small bowl.
  10. Add your slurry to the chicken and veggie mixture and simmer until the sauce has thickened further
  11. Add your cashews and stir to combine
