Yummy Dinner

On Monday evening we made a delicious dinner of Cashew Chicken.  I have included the recipe that we followed in case this sounds like a yummy dinner to make for your family!  We all loved it and I think it will be a recipe we make more often!

 Cashew Chicken

5 chicken breast halves (skinned, boned, cut in small pieces)
2 T cornstarch 
¼ C soy sauce

A variety of yummy vegetables- carrots, zucchini, asparagus, bell pepper, celery, broccoli, etc

¼C oil

Cooking Sauce
2 t cornstarch
1 C chicken broth (I use 1 C water and 1 t bouillon)

Mix soy sauce and cornstarch and add chicken pieces.  Heat 1-2 tablespoons oil in cast iron skillet and add chicken mixture.  Stir several minutes until chicken is done.  Remove chicken to a bowl.

Heat 2-3 tablespoons oil in cast iron skillet.  Add all vegetables (chopped) and stir for two minutes.  Place lid on the cast iron skillet and cook for an additional two minutes, stirring occasionally.  Uncover and cook for another 2-4 minutes.

Return chicken to pan and add cooking sauce.  Stir until thick.  Add cashews.

Serve over rice.

What would a yummy dinner be if we didn't take pictures of us enjoying it!
