Chicken with chashew

 

One of my favorite countries to travel is Thailand. I love the friendly people, the stunning and variable landscapes and the terrific food. In the north of Thailand, in Chiang Mai, I was fortunate to participate in a great cooking course held by a wonderful Thai cook. Today I would like to share one of my favorite Thai dishes with you because it is so easy to make, healthy and soooo good.

CHICKEN WITH CASHEW NUTS

For 2

400 g chicken breast, cut into bite size stripes

4 Tbsp sweet chili paste

1 small hot chili

1 large onion, cut into wedges

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

4 Tbsp sesame oil

1 cup chicken soup

200 g green beans, frozen (optional)

2 green onions (scallops)

100 g cashew nuts

In a large wok heat the oil and fry onion, garlic and chili. Add the chicken and fry until half done. Add the chili paste and fry for a few minutes. Add soup (and green beans) and let simmer for about 5 minutes until chicken is done. If it gets too dry add more soup. Add cashew nuts and simmer for about 2 minutes. Nuts should still be crunchy in the middle. Add salt to taste. Serve with basmati rice. Done!
