  3. Add 1 tbsp vegetable oil to pan with the celery, onions, cashews, and garlic. Stir-fry about 2 minutes, until crisp-tender. Add sauce mixture and chicken to pan. Stir-fry about 3-4 minutes longer, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is thicked. Serve with rice and garnished with scallions.
