Diced Chicken With Cashew Nuts

Ever since we had this dish from Lerk Thai we became a fan of this. Till this time we only had it in restaurants. Then I thought it is high time we try it at home. Mmmm and my hubby took charge of this. And wow... it came really wonderful!!!

Chicken Breast - 500 gm (Cut in to 1.5 cm cubes)
Button Mushrooms - 5 (Discard stem and cut in to 4)
Carrot - 1 (Cut in to 1 cm cubes)
Onion - 1 (Cut in to 1 cm cubes)
Ginger - 1 inch piece (Slice in to thin long pieces)
Baby Corn - 2-3 (Chop in to 1 cm pieces)
Capsicum - 1 (Chop in to 1.5 cm cubes)
Spring Onion - 5 (Chop in to 1 inch length)
Cashew Nuts - 10-15 Roasted
Light Soy Sauce - 1.5 t spoon
Oyster Sauce - 2 t spoon
Corn Flour - 1 t spoon
Salt - 1.5 t spoon
Coriander Leaves - 1-2 sprig for garnishing
Oil - 3 table spoon

  1. Put chicken cubes, corn flour and 1 t spoon salt in a bowl, mix well & set aside for around 30 mins
  2. Heat 1 table spoon oil in a wok. Stir-fry mushrooms & carrots for 1 min & dish out
  3. To heated wok, add seasoned chicken & stir-fry until cooked. Dish out and wash wok
  4. Heat 2 table spoon oil in the wok & fry onion pcs until transparent
  5. Return fried chicken, mushrooms & carrots to the wok, then add young corn, ginger, remaining salt & stir-fry for 1 – 2 mins
  6. Add green capsicums, spring onions, roasted cashew nuts, soy & oyster sauce and stir well
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot (I ran out of coriander, so used capsicum for garnishing ;))

  22. This recipe is something good, not as a main dish but as a starter.... Very nice with drinks if you add some more chilly.

    I think Aparna forgot to add some ingredients... In picture we can see pepper powder, but she didn't mentioned it....

    any way the dish is O.K... Good looking with and average taste...

  23. Removed all negative comments right?
    This is the worst dish i ever made with chicken. Something is missing somewhere. Please review the ingredients.

  24. Hi, Aparna... Can you please remove the above post
    by me (Anonymous-Nov.4,2012 2:59pm). It was not for this recipe. It was for something else. I paste it here by mistake. Sorry for the trouble.
