Chicken Cashew Stir Fry Recipe

Not only is this classic Thai dish delicious as a takeaway, it’s also really simple to make at home. Our recipe uses crunchy green vegetables on a bed of wholewheat noodles, but you can use wholemeal rice, or soba noodles for a healthier alternative.

The entire meal takes approximately 30-40 minutes to prepare, and serves 2.

2 cups broccoli

1/2 cup baby corn

2 carrots (sliced)

100g wholewheat noodles

1 chicken breast (boneless)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp sesame oil

  2. Next, heat the olive oil, minced ginger, and garlic into a deep-set frying pan, or alternatively a wok if you have one in your kitchen. Keep cooking until the mixture is golden brown, then promptly add the chicken and sesame oil.
  3. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until the chicken has completed cooked-through.
  4. Stir in the noodles, cashews and remaining vegetables with a splash of soy sauce for an authentic taste.
