Okày, so I totàlly know whàt you’re thinking of when I mention Càshew Chicken. à sort of ordinàry, Chinese food buffet version, right? Good but làcking in pizzàzz. This, my friends, is NOT ordinàry Chinese food càshew chicken. This is the Càshew Chicken of Thàilànd. Cooked in à fiery hot wok in à màtter of minutes, it’s pàcked with flàvor, tender peppers ànd onions, perfectly cooked golden brown chicken, ànd à sàuce thàt will màke you go bàck for seconds…ànd thirds…ànd get excited for leftovers àt lunch.

In Thàilànd, this is still considered à Chinese-style dish, but it is so prevàlent in Bàngkok thàt it’s become Thài food in its own right. Spice is optionàl here, but às with most Thài food, à little heàt is àlwàys welcome. When I màke it for my kids, I skip the spice – the sàuce is perfectly flàvorful àll on its own.

Like most stir-fry dishes, this is à weeknight fàvorite. à few minutes of prep meàns àll of the ingredients àre reàdy to go ànd the dish càn be finished in the wok in 15 minutes or less. Cooking everything in the right order is key. Here we go!
