Teriyaki Cashew Chicken

I’m a HUGE fan of homemade anything, but I also realize it’s not always possible to make everything from “scratch”.  That’s why I’ve decided to start a category here called, “semi-homemade”.  

These recipes use some fresh ingredients and some “convenience” ingredients.  My hope is to equip and encourage busy moms to make dinner at home rather than pick up more fast food.  Not that I don’t enjoy the occasional greasy hamburger and fries, because believe me, I DO! But I also know that can get expensive and it’s not good for you.  

These recipes are kid-friendly, family tested and approved!  

Today, I’m starting with Teriyaki Cashew Chicken.  We have this almost every week, it seems.  The inspiration for this dish came from a favorite Asian fast food restaurant, know to our family as “P E”.  I usually serve it over Jasmine or Basmati rice with a side of stir fry broccoli. To make it even easier, serve with a salad topped with Asian dressing.  Quick and easy dinner in under thirty minutes!  

My “convenience” ingredient in this recipe is the teriyaki sauce.  I use a brand called Soy Vay.  We love the flavor and it has tons of sesame seeds, which we enjoy, but you can experiment with different brands until you find your favorite.  

Here’s the Recipe:

2-3 large boneless skinless chicken breast – cut into bite sized pieces

1/2-1 cup cashew nuts

teriyaki sauce

1 tablespoon oil

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat and saute cashews until golden brown

Remove cashews and set aside

In same skillet, cook chicken until completely done and slightly browned

Return nuts to pan

Pour in as much teriyaki sauce as you like.  We like extra to flavor our rice so I use about half the bottle.

Stir until everything is well coated

Reduce heat and simmer until heated through

Serve over rice

    I like the idea of semi-homemade! I, too, like to cook from scratch most of the time, but sometimes we all need a little help. Your teriyaki-cashew chicken looks so good.

    Nice! I think I’m going to make this at home! I love how the recipe list is short and simple. =) It is really hard to get that take-out taste, however, you know what products and how much salt you are putting in the dish. Thank you for this recipe!! And great blog, btw!! <3
