Cashew Chicken, without the green onions

I don't do green onions.  Or any onions for that matter.  I do like Burger King's onion rings, though.  Not convinced there's anything that ever resembled an onion in those things, so maybe that's why I like 'em.

2 lbs boneless skinless chicken, chopped
8 cloves garlic
1 cup cashews
4 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons corn starch
3/4 water or chicken stock
2 tablespoons olive oil
kosher salt and pepper
steamed white rice
1. Cook white rice according to package directions. Preheat large skillet or wok over low heat. Add olive oil, garlic and cashews to skillet. Saute over low heat until garlic becomes golden, but don't let the garlic brown, or it will become bitter.
2. Salt and pepper chicken. Add chicken to skillet and cook until chicken is no longer pink. Add cornstarch to a small bowl with the water and mix well. Add cornstarch and water to chicken. Then add hoisin sauce and vinegar. Simmer for 5 - 10 minutes, until sauce has thickened. Serve with rice.

  1. I'd do that! With extra green onions, of course! :-) LOL
