Cashew Chicken and Broccoli

So quick, so easy, and always SO GOOD. ♡

This cashew chicken broccoli recipe is here for you on busy weeknights when you need to get a healthy and delicious meal on the table in a snap! It’s made with a simple chicken and broccoli stir-fry, tossed with lots of toasted cashews, fresh garlic, ginger, and scallions. Then everything is brought together with a perfectly-balanced savory sauce that’s sweetened with a hint of honey. Serve it all up over rice, noodles, quinoa or whatever sounds best, add a drizzle of sriracha if you’d like some heat, and dinner can be on the table and ready to enjoy in 30!

That said, as much as I love this recipe served sizzling hot out of the skillet, I have to say that the leftovers are absolutely fantastic too. And while I’m partial to the chicken broccoli and cashews combo, this recipe is endlessly flexible if you’d like to swap in whichever protein, veggies or nuts that you love best. So please feel free to customize and make it your own.

Alright, let’s get to stir-frying!
