  • 1 large red pepper - فلفل أحمر
  • 5 medium spring onion - بصلة خضراء

  • 4 large garlic clove (crushed) - فص ثوم
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil - زيت زيتون
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder - بودرة ثوم
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper - فلفل أسود
  • 8 tablespoon soy sauce - صوص الصويا
  • 3 tablespoon water - ماء
  • 3 teaspoon sugar (preferably brown sugar) - سكر
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil - زيت السمسم
  • 1 handful cashew nuts - الكاجو

Step by step

  1. Cut the chicken into thin strips, season with black pepper and garlic powder, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes, or overnight.
  2. To prepare the veggies, cut the red pepper into strips, and cut every spring onion into two lengthwise then chop diagonally. Leave the snap peas whole, if using any.
  3. Combine the soy sauce with the water and sugar and set aside.
  4. Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a wok or large frying pan and stir fry the chicken over high heat until golden and cooked through. Remove from the wok, cover and set aside.
  5. In the same wok, heat another tablespoon of olive oil then add the ginger and crushed garlic. Stir fry for 30 seconds before you add the veggies. Stir fry for another 2 minutes, then return the chicken and stir in the soy mixture.
  6. Lower the heat and leave the chicken to simmer for further 2 minutes. Add the cashews, sesame oil and more black pepper if needed, toss together, and serve!

  2. Nour says:

    It was very nice 🙂 but do u roast the cashew ? As it was soft or that because I left it in the sauce ?

    Hi Nour, glad you liked it. You can roast it, but in all cases you have to add it at the very end. Try not to leave it to simmer in the sauce. Thank you for your feedback 🙂
