Among many of my favorite healthy chicken recipes, this quick and healthy meal cooked Chinese-style, stir-fried broccoli with cashews is delicious served with hot steamed rice or noodles. In this chicken recipe, skinless and boneless chicken breasts are cut into chunks and marinated in a sweet, tangy and salty mixture of sugar, garlic and soy sauce and then stir-fried in hot oil. The dish is combined with red bell peppers, broccoli, and onions and seasoned with chicken broth thickened with cornstarch. The dish is garnished with cashews to add a nutty flavor and crunch.
The stir-frying method allows the chicken chunks to retain its shape even after cooking on medium-high heat for a beautiful presentation. The broccoli and red bell peppers also provide a pleasant color contrast for a lively and vibrant meal.
