Chicken and Cashews with Broccoli Stir-Fry
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
500g chicken breast, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 small leek, thinly sliced (if you don't know how to cut a leek, I didn't but now I love leeks, watch this very awesome YouTube video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm6XGDwjJQA)
1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
250g broccoli, chopped
1 teaspoon cornflour
1 teaspoon chicken stock powder
1/2cup (125ml) water
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1/2 cup unsalted roasted cashews (I just realised I have been using raw cashews this whole time but they are still so yummy)
- Heat half the oil in wok (I use a big frying pan).
- Add chicken, stir-fry until tender, remove.
- Heat remaining oil in wok, add garlic, leek, carrot and broccoli, stir-fry until leek is soft.
- Add chicken and blended cornflour, stock powder and water, sauce and nuts, stir until mixture boils and thickens slightly.
Okay so I don't blend the liquids I just put them all in a jug (sauce as well even though recipe doesn't say that) and mix with a spoon. The sauce is really mild and just nice with the other components, I am not a spicy sauce fan, this one is absolutely perfect for me.
