Here’s how to whip up this delicious Sweet Chilli Chicken and Cashew Stir-fry:

1. Start by slicing your chicken breasts into thin strips. Try to keep them as even as possible for consistent cooking.

2. In a large pan or wok, heat one tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken strips and cook until they’re no longer pink in the center. This should take about 6-8 minutes. Once done, remove the chicken from the pan and set it aside.

3. In the same pan, add another tablespoon of olive oil. Toss in the minced garlic and ginger, stirring until fragrant.

4. Add the chopped red bell pepper, sliced carrots, and snow peas to the pan. Stir-fry the veggies until they’re tender yet crisp. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

5. Return the cooked chicken to the pan, along with the cashews. Mix well.

6. Pour in the sweet chilli sauce and soy sauce, tossing the ingredients to ensure they’re well-coated.

7. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.


1. If you like your stir-fry with a little more heat, feel free to add some red pepper flakes.

2. For an extra crunch, you can lightly toast the cashews in a dry pan before adding them to the stir-fry.
