Ingredients

  • 1

    tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1

    tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon oyster sauce

  • ½

    teaspoon sesame oil

  • ½

    cup low-sodium soy sauce

  • 3

    tablespoons chopped fresh ginger

  • 6

    boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into small cubes

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 3

    tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 1

    green bell pepper, cut into small cubes

  • ¼

    cup dry sherry

  • 2

    tablespoons cornstarch

  • 1

    cup whole roasted, unsalted cashews

  • cup water chestnuts, chopped

  • 2

    scallions, thinly sliced

  • Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish

Directions

In a bowl, combine the vinegar, brown sugar, oyster sauce, sesame oil, 1/4 cup of the soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of the ginger. Set aside. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and saute until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. In the same skillet, stir-fry the garlic, bell peppers and remaining 2 tablespoons ginger, keeping them crisp-tender. Deglaze the skillet with the sherry and scrape up any brown bits. Add the reserved soy mixture and cook until the mixture boils, about 1 minute. Whisk together the cornstarch and remaining 1/4 cup soy in a small bowl, then stir the slurry into the skillet. Add the cashews and water chestnuts. Add 1/4 cup water to thin the sauce. Cook for another minute. Serve garnished with the scallions and cilantro.
