Honey cashew chicken



Honey cashew chicken

  • Oil for cooking
  • 500 gr chicken fillet, cut into cubes
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/3 cup corn flour
  • 1 onions, thinly slices
  • 1 red capsicum (pepper), thinly slices
  • 1/2 cup cashew nuts
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • salt and pepper
Method:
  1. Heat the wok until very hot, add 1 1/2 tablespoon of oil and swirl it around to coat the side.
  2. Dip half of the chicken into the egg white, then lightly dust with cornflour. Stir-fry over high heat for 4-5 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and just cooked.
  3. Remove from the wok and drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining chicken, then remove all the chicken from the wok.
  4. Reheat the wok and add 1 tablespoon oil , and stir fry the onion for 3-4 minutes, add the capsicum, stir for 3 minutes.
  5. Increase the heat, add honey, the chicken and cashew nuts, toss until it is heated through and its well coated in the honey, season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve with rice.
I took this recipe from my book call fat controller.

I know im not fat but i think its a good book because they tell the nutrition per serve, from protein, fat, carbohydrate, dietary fibre, and the cholesterol too, so i don't have too worry about the amount of fat or cholesterol on my food, and they all quite healthy food recipe.

Originally they used the almond, but i only have cashew nut on my cupboard, and they are nuts too :).
