Chicken Stir-Fry with Asparagus and Cashews

November 15, 2008

I just tried this recipe and it was delicious.. loved the combination of oyster sauce with the lime.

From Food and Wine Magazine: Good News Cashews contain oleic acid, the same monounsaturated fat that makes olive oil so heart-healthy. This chicken-cashew stir-fry is a lighter take on a dish that Stéphane Vivier orders at Rin’s Thai in Sonoma, California. Its Asian flavors come from a bright mix of fish sauce, oyster sauce and basil—and just a little oil.

My Note: for the asparagus, I clipped the stalks in two so the pieces were about 3 inches long to make them more bite size.    Also I used a little bit less than the 1 pd, to make the portions more equal to the chicken.
