Chicken cashew stir-fry is a delicious Asian dish that typically consists of shredded chicken, cashew nuts, and vegetables stir-fried together in a hot wok. The dish is popular both in Asia and in the Western world because of its flavorful and healthy ingredients.

To make a chicken cashew stir-fry, one starts by shredding chicken fillets and chopping vegetables such as bell peppers, carrots, and onions. Then, the chicken is sautéed in a hot wok with oil until golden brown and cooked through. Next, the vegetables are added and sautéed until they become tender.

Once the vegetables are ready, cashew nuts and a sauce made of soy sauce, hoisin sauce, garlic, and ginger are added. The sauce provides a sweet and salty taste to the dish while the cashew nuts add a creamy and crunchy texture. Everything is then stirred in the pan until the sauce covers all the ingredients, and the dish is ready to be served.
