Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Into a wok or a large pan, add Coconut Oil (1 1/2 Tbsp). Let it melt down and bring it up to high heat. You want the wok smoking.
step 2
Add the Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs (1.5 lb) in batches, cooking for 2 minutes each. If you overcrowd the wok, you will end up stewing the chicken instead of getting a nice brown crust. The chicken won’t be cooked all the way through but will be finished later on, so remove the chicken and set it aside.
step 3
Add in Onion (1) and Red Bell Peppers (2). Stir fry them for 2 minutes.
step 4
Add Chili Garlic Sauce (1 Tbsp), Garlic (1/2 tsp), Ground Ginger (1/2 tsp), Sea Salt (1/8 tsp), Ground Black Pepper (1/8 tsp), and Rice Wine (1/4 cup). Mix well over high heat.
step 5
Add the chicken back into the wok and mix well. Now add Sesame Oil (1 tsp) and Cashew Nuts (1 cup) and cook for 5 minutes.
step 6
Add Sesame Seeds (1 Tbsp) and mix to combine.
step 6 Add Sesame Seeds (1 Tbsp) and mix to combine.
step 7
Serve dish family style or plate up individually. Scatter Scallions (to taste) on top along with those wok juices. Finish it with extra Sesame Seeds (to taste) and you have a meal that's better than takeout!
