Top tips to cook gluten free cashew chicken
- Use enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan, to avoid the chicken cubes from sticking to the pan.
- For the base, you can use any rice you’d like. I used white rice because that’s the one I like, but this would also pair well with brown rice or quinoa.
- If you like your food spicy, feel free to add some red pepper flakes or a bit of sriracha to the sauce! If you’re not that into spicy food just skip it.
- Store any gluten free cashew chicken leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Reheat in a pan on the stovetop or in the microwave.
