Chicken Stir-Fry with Broccoli and Cashew Nuts – Introduction to Chinese Cuisine

 

This is a very important dish for my family because it introduced my daughters to Chinese (or at least Chinese style) cuisine. The girls were very picky eaters and there was a very narrow variety of products they would be happy to eat. But – like majority of mothers – I tried to slowly introduce them to new ingredients. When finally they seemed to be ready, I made this stir-fry and they loved it. (OK, I still had to pick out carrots from one of the portions, but at least my daughter didn't mind that the carrots touched other ingredients, so it was a great success after all!). The only complaint was about the too small amount of cashews so, from then on, I always added more of them.

When I cook this dish nowadays, I add slightly more oyster sauce to it to give a more distinct flavour. So if you cook for older children or adults, you should put 3 tablespoons of oyster sauce instead of the 2 mentioned in the recipe below.
