Chicken and Cashew Nuts #asianpersuasion

I live with the most adorable asian flat mate. Not only is he an amazing cook, but he has the ability to whip up anything asian. After having asian with drawls from his fantastic cooking as he hibernated in honour of his dissertation, I took it upon myself to continue on with the asian cooking in our household and made my favourite meal – chicken and cashew nuts (the mild version). Now I am do spicy, and recommend throwing in a chili pepper for those who enjoy a hotter dish, but I needed something easy I could whip up for leftovers at lunch without blowing my mouth off! This recipe, if served with rice, makes enough for a few meals which is excellent.
