“Inspired by some other stir-fry experiments, this is an attempt to recreate a Chinese takeout favorite from a restaurant I no longer live close to. Other veggies can be added as you like.” - by Colleen
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Whisk together the chicken broth, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger, and brown sugar in a bowl.
- Combine 1/4 cup cornstarch, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger, and curry powder in a large, sealable plastic bag and shake to mix. Add the chicken to the bag and toss until well coated.
- Heat the olive oil and sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Cook and stir the chicken in the hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the green onions and bell pepper to the pan, cooking another 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the sauce mixture into the chicken and vegetable mixture; reduce heat to medium. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the dish and bring to a boil; allow to boil until the sauce thickens, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat; add cashews and toss to serve.

"I thought this was delicious. I only gave it four stars because I changed some things. I used hoisin sauce instead of soy sauce. Hoisin sauce has soy sauce in it but tastes better than soy sauce. I us..." See moreed half teaspoon of ginger and half teaspoon of curry powder. I did not use sesame oil or sesame seeds because I did not have them. I served this with rice and I will definitely make it again."
