Chicken is easy to cook whether you bake, boil, stir fry, deep fry, grill or whatever way you cook it. Not only is it easy to cook but it is very tender and delicious. I like to cook chicken. If you follow my posts, you will find that I like hot and spicy food. It gives that punch as it tantalizes your taste buds. Sometimes I cook too spicy even for myself. No worry. The most effective way is to have a glass of milk at the side. It really works.
Nuts are very nutritious and good for health. Adding to meat dishes is very common in Chinese cooking. I like to use cashew nuts, peanuts or pine nuts. Cashew nuts work very well in this dish.
This Spicy Cashew Nuts Chicken is my family favourite. It is a popular Chinese dish, also called Gong Bao Chicken. It is very delicious. This is one dish that you will be happy if there’s left over because it actually tastes even better the next day. If you don’t like it spicy, you can omit the crushed chilies or you can also try my other non-spicy dish, Cashew Nuts Chicken.
This recipe is again simple and easy.
4 pieces of chicken thigh (deboned and cut into bite-size pieces)
a big knob of ginger (washed and sliced)
1 big onion (peeled and cut into big pieces)
3 cloves garlic (peeled and chopped)
3T crushed dried chilies
Ingredients B (marinade)
2T light soya sauce
2T corn flour
Ingredients C (seasoning)
3T hot chili sauce
1T oyster sauce
1T light soya sauce
1t chicken stock granules
Marinade the chicken pieces with the Ingredients B for about 30 minutes.
Heat up some oil in a frying pan or wok and add the chicken pieces. Fry until both sides are golden. Dish up on to a plate. Don’t throw away the oil. Now, you can actually enjoy it just as it is. It’s very delicious. I was eating away while making the sauce for it!
Add the ginger, garlic and crushed chilies to the frying pan, and fry until fragrant. Add the seasoning in Ingredients C. When it comes to a boil, add the chicken pieces and mix well. Dish up and serve hot. We had it with rice. Everyone enjoyed it. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste.
