How to 

1. Mix the sauce and marinate the chicken cubes while preparing the vegetables for up to 4-5 hours.

2. Add the marinated chicken and 50 -100 ml water in a large pan or pot, bring to boil and then simmer for approx 6-10 min and until the chicken is 80% cooked through.

3. Add all the vegetables except the spring onion – cook for another 2 minutes. The vegetables should still be crispy.

4. Add roasted cashew and the green onion.

5. Serve with toasted sesame seeds, chili flakes and cauliflower rice, teff or red rice.

 

Tips 

We prepare the sauce as a marinade and then first marinate the chicken to make it more tender and tasty and then let it simmer in the marinade together with some added water on low heat. This is to avoid frying in oil on high heat as it is inflammatory and recommended to avoid when following an anti-inflammatory lifestyle. Therefore we recommend to steam, oven bake or simmer on low heat. Read more here
