Fried Chicken With Cashew Nuts

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Annetty

Yes, another Chicken with Cashew dish - this one is a Thai style and there is quiet alot of liquid. Its a very tasty dish, its also quick & simple to make and great served with rice. I sometimes increase the chicken to about 500g and still leave all the other ingredients the same. You can also use less oil if you are using a non-stick pan

This was very nice, I did halve the sauce for two of us and there was still heaps. I found it a tad sweet, would have preferred a bit more chilli flavour, but all in all a good recipe. Served with rice and channai roti; thanks for posting!
