Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Put the chicken into a bowl. Add the hoisin sauce and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Stir to combine then let it sit while you prepare the other ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the 2/3 cup soy sauce, chicken broth, cornstarch, sugar and vinegar. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add crushed red pepper flakes to oil, if using. Once hot, add half chicken in an even layer and cook for 3 minutes, stirring once or twice. Remove chicken to a plate and repeat with rest of the chicken. 
  4. Add remaining oil to skillet. Add broccoli and mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. 
  5. Return chicken to skillet. Add cashews. Pour in sauce and cook, stirring often, until sauce has thickened to your liking.

Made this for my boys last night. It disappeared in a flash. I had given up on making my own stir fry sauce using bottled instead. The sauce here is easy and yummy — it will work in any stir fry I put together.
