Recipe Notes

Note: If you want to add konjac noodles to this dish, which works really well, rinse them, then add them to the pan at the same time as the cashews and stir to warm through.

There are lots of additions or alterations you can make to this dish, like, use cajun spice to coat and spice the chicken, add garlic, add ground cummin, or a hint of hot chili. Experiment with the original recipe and see what you can come up with.
