Super simple, nourishing, and delicious Asian-style gluten free cashew chicken with veggies!



For the sauce

  • 3 tbsp gluten-free soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp gluten-free hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

For the chicken

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb chicken, sliced into bite size pieces
  • 4 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup of broccoli florets
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup raw cashews

To top (optional)

  • Cilantro leaves
  • Green onions
  • Sesame seeds


  1. In a medium bowl, add the cornstarch and salt and mix until blended. Toss the chicken and the cornstarch together until evenly coated.
  2. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil, then stir in the garlic, the red bell pepper, the broccoli, and the green onions. Stir fry for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently to avoid burning. Cover with a lid for 3 more minutes for the veggies to fully cook. Once cooked, remove the veggies from the pan.
  3. If needed, add a little more oil to the pan, then add the chicken. Allow to cook for 5-7 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. In the meantime, whisk all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl.
  5. In the same pan, add the veggies, the cashews, and the sauce. Reduce heat and stir for a minute until the sauce blends in. Serve over white rice and enjoy!
