Posted by Nick Sheridan on

Looking for a weeknight dinner that's quick, flavourful, and packed with protein? Look no further than this Cashew Chicken Stir-Fry featuring the star of the show – our very own 99th Monkey Salted Cashew Butter!

This recipe takes the classic stir-fry concept and elevates it with the rich, nutty flavour of our Salted Cashew Butter. The result? A dish that's not only delicious and satisfying, but also nutrient-rich with a whopping 39 grams of protein per serving. Plus, it's perfect for meal prepping, making your busy weeks a breeze.

Why Salted Cashew Butter?

Our Salted Cashew Butter isn't just for spreading on toast! Its creamy texture and unique flavour profile make it an incredible addition to savoury dishes. In this stir-fry, the Cashew Butter forms the base of a creamy, slightly sweet sauce that beautifully complements the chicken and vegetables. The addition of salt enhances the overall flavour profile, creating a balanced and addictive taste sensation.

Beyond the Flavour: Nutritional Powerhouse

This stir-fry isn't just delicious, it's also packed with essential nutrients. The chicken breast mince provides a lean source of protein, crucial for building and maintaining muscle mass. The vegetables, including carrots, capsicums, and snow peas, add a vibrant mix of colours and essential vitamins and minerals.

But the real hero of this recipe is the 99th Monkey Salted Cashew Butter. Cashews are a great source of healthy fats, protein, and fibre. They also contain essential minerals like magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. By incorporating a generous amount of Cashew Butter, we boost the protein content of the dish and add healthy fats that keep you feeling full and satisfied.

Easy Meal Prep for Busy Lives

This recipe is perfect for meal prepping! Simply cook the stir-fry and portion it into containers for easy grab-and-go lunches or dinners throughout the week. The flavours will actually develop further as the dish sits, making it even more delicious on those busy days.

Ready to Wok 'n' Roll? Here's What You'll Need:

For the Cashew Sauce:

  • 200ml light coconut cream
  • 30ml light soy sauce
  • 20ml sweet chilli sauce
  • 80g 99th Monkey Salted Cashew Butter

For the Stir-Fry:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 500g chicken breast mince
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Pinch of chilli flakes (optional)
  • 200g grated carrot
  • 200g sliced capsicum
  • 150g snow peas
  • 1 packet Coles Asia Hokkien Noodles (or stir-fry noodles of your choice) prepped according to package instructions

Here's How to Make It:

  1. Prepare the Cashew Sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together the light coconut cream, light soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce, and 99th Monkey Salted Cashew Butter until smooth and well combined. Set aside.
  2. Cook the Chicken: Heat olive oil in a large wok or pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breast mince and cook, breaking it up with a spatula, until browned and cooked through.
  3. Season the Chicken: Sprinkle the cooked chicken with garlic powder, onion powder, and chilli flakes (if using). Stir to coat and cook for an additional minute.
  4. Add the Vegetables: Add the grated carrot, sliced capsicum, and snow peas to the pan with the chicken. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened but still crisp-tender.
  5. Incorporate the Noodles: Add the cooked Coles Asia Hokkien Noodles (or your preferred noodles) to the pan with the chicken and vegetables. Stir to combine.
  6. Bring on the Cashew Sauce: Pour the prepared cashew sauce into the pan with the stir-fry ingredients. Gently toss everything together until the noodles are coated and the sauce is heated through.
  7. Serve and Enjoy! Divide the stir-fry into 4 serving bowls and enjoy immediately.

Tips and Variations:

  • For a spicier stir-fry, add a few dashes of Sriracha or your favourite hot sauce to the cashew sauce.
  • Feel free to substitute different vegetables based on your preferences. Broccoli, green beans, and baby corn are all excellent choices.
