Cashew Chicken PRINT
- YIELD: 4 servings
Toasting brings out the sweet, buttery flavor of the cashews. Cook on a baking sheet at 350 degrees until golden and fragrant, about 10 minutes.
Note: Although ingredients vary by brand, hoisin sauce is generally made with soybeans, chiles, and spices. This thick, dark-brown sauce is used both at the table and as a seasoning in cooking.
