Orange and Cashew Chicken


We had a really good dinner tonight.  I thought I would share.  Not the actual food, but well here it is.  I found this recipe on Tasteofhome.com



  • 1 cup instant brown rice
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges
  • 1/4 cup chopped cashews
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 3/4 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped bok choy
  • 1/4 cup minced chives


  • Cook rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, drain oranges, reserving 1/2 cup oranges and 2 tablespoons juice (save remainder for another use).
  • In a small bowl, combine the cashews, broth, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce and reserved juice; set aside. In a large wok or skillet, stir-fry chicken in oil until no longer pink. Add cashew mixture; cook 1 minute longer. Add the bok choy, chives and reserved oranges; cook and stir for 2 minutes.
  • Fluff rice with a fork; serve with chicken mixture. Yield: 3 servings.

Sorry no pictures of me making this but it was super easy.  My kitchen was just too big a mess by the time I thought to take pictures.  Hope you try this and like it.  We did.
