Ingredients

    Ingredients:

    1 boneless & skinless chicken breast, about 10 oz. (cut into small cubes)
    1/2 cup unsalted cashew nuts
    1 small green bell pepper, about 4 oz. (cut into small square pieces)
    5 slices ginger
    1/4 onion (cut into small square pieces)

    Marinade:

    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon corn starch
    1/2 teaspoon rice wine

    1/2 tablespoon oyster sauce
    3/4 teaspoon soy sauce

    1/2 teaspoon rice wine
    1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
    Salt to taste

Method:
1.Marinate the chicken meat with the baking soda for 15-20 minutes and then rinse the chicken thoroughly. (Please make sure that the chicken is properly rinsed clean of the baking soda.)

3.Mix the sauce together and set aside.
4.Heat up a wok with 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and stir-fry the chicken meat until the color turns white or half-cooked. Dish out and set aside.
5.Add another 1 tablespoon of cooking oil into the wok and add in the ginger slices, bell peppers and onions.
6.Stir-fry until you smell the peppery aroma from the green peppers and add the chicken meat back in.
