This One Skillet Cashew Chicken Stir Fry is the perfect weeknight meal that is quick and easy to make, full of fresh veggies and tossed together in a delicious homemade peanut sauce!


Yield: 6 Servings 1x


For the sauce:


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil to coat the pan.  Once the pan is hot, add the chicken in an even layer.  Season with salt and pepper and cook until lightly browned, about 4 to 5 minutes, stirring the chicken as needed.  Once the chicken is cooked, transfer to a plate and set aside.
  2. Drizzle another tablespoon of olive oil onto the hot skillet and add the broccoli, bell pepper, snap peas and carrots.  Cook the vegetables until tender, about 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. To make the peanut sauce, whisk together tamari (or soy sauce), peanut butter, honey, sesame oil, and grated ginger in a small bowl. Whisk in 2 or 3 tablespoons of water (or broth), depending on the consistency you prefer, and set aside.
  4. Once the veggies are nice and tender, add the chicken back to the pan and mix together.  Add in the garlic and cook for about a minute, then add in cashews and pour the peanut sauce over top.  Mix well, making sure everything is coated, and bring the sauce to a boil.  Turn down the heat and simmer until sauce has thickened up and everything is incorporated.
  5. Sprinkle with green onions, serve and enjoy!
