Recipe Ingredients for Becky's Coconut/Orange/Cashew Chicken


Chicken:
1 lb chicken breasts
2 tbs canola oil
1/2 cup orange juice

Sauce:
1 1/4 cups cashews (roasted)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 clove garlic

Recipe Directions for Becky's Coconut/Orange/Cashew Chicken

  1. In a skillet, cover chicken and cook over medium heat.

  2. When chicken is about 1/2 way done, maybe ready to flip over, add the juice of one large orange (about 1/2 cup).

  3. Continue to simmer until chicken is done.

  4. For the sauce, combine 1 cup of the roasted cashews and the rest of the ingredients (save 1/4 cup of the cashews to add at the end of the meal) ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. When the chicken is done, add the leftover broth to the blender and blend one more time.

  5. Serve chicken over a bed of rice and use as much or as little of the sauce as you want.

  6. Sprinkle the dish with the cashews you saved.

  7. Steamed broccoli goes really well with this dish.

  8. Enjoy!
