Ingredients

Here's how to make it:

  1. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Add the cornstarch and toss to coat. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet or wok. Add half the chicken and cook until browned on all sides, about 3 minutes. Remove.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and add the remaining chicken. Cook about 1 minute, then add the garlic and white parts of the onion. Cook until chicken is browned, about 2 minutes. Return the first batch of chicken to the skillet. Add the vinegar. Cook until vinegar evaporates, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the hoisin sauce and water. Cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Add the green parts of the onion and cashews. Cook about 30 seconds more. Serve over rice.
