Ahhh….I am going to swoon!
About this yummy chicken with cashew nuts and colorful veggies, all in a delicious orange-ginger sauce…
I am almost speechless. Almost. Because I still have to tell you to try this amazing Cashew Chicken. It is inspired by one of our favorite dishes that we tried on 1.5 years of travel in Asia. And trust me, we have tried many. I don’t think I have eaten out as much in my entire life time as in those 18 months of travel. It just was so easy (street food stalls on every corner), soo delicious and so freaking CHEAP!
We had the meal that inspired this Cashew Chicken at a night food market in Krabi – the town we lived in longest while in Thailand. All of the food was awesome there but we ordered this cashew chicken meal over and over again. The owners of the food stall are of Chinese origin and this meal is definitely better categorized as Chinese food rather than Thai.
I used an orange ginger stir-fry sauce to bind all the awesome chicken, cashews and veggies together, but if you only have some sweet and sour sauce on hand that will work just fine too.
