Mmmm, toasted cashews, especially in this cashew chicken recipe are delicious! This recipe combines so many flavors that are all brought together with the cashews.
I don’t know about you, but plain chicken gets boring after a while. This cashew chicken recipe offers a different twist on your regular chicken meals.
This is a classic Paleo-style meal, served by itself. There’s no need for rice here, it can stand on its own in taste and satisfaction. Adding the chopped green onions at the end gives it a fresh zest that brings out the rest of the flavors on the plate. Enjoy!
