10 minutes (20 minutes)
Serves 4
  • 1/3 cup raw unsalted cashew nuts
  • 500g skinless chicken breast fillets, trimmed of fat
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 carrots, cut into short thin strips

  • 1 tablespoon salt reduced soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tablespoon honey

  2. Cut chicken crossways into thin slices and place into a bowl. Add oil and mix well.
  3. Heat a large, non-stick wok or deep frying pan over a high heat. Add 1/3 of the chicken and stir-fry for 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked though. Remove to a clean plate. Repeat in two batches with the remaining chicken.
