Chicken and Cashews

This one is for when you have a little bit of time for preparation but it is worth it.

500g chicken breast fillets
1/2 cup rice flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cashews processed with one large clove of garlic
chopped or shredded cabbage

Chop chicken into strips (as for stir frying). Put rice flour in a freezer bag and coat the chicken in it. Shallow fry in some oil. Set cooked chicken aside in a dish with some paper towel to absorb excess oil. Drain most of the oil from frypan and discard. Add processed cashews and garlic to frypan with salt and sugar and a dash of water. Stir until it forms a fairly runny sauce. Add more water if needed - even a cup or so. Add cabbage and chicken and stir until the whole lot is coated in sauce. Put the lid on and let the cabbage steam while you serve up the pasta and beans etc. You could even do the first bit earlier in the day and just do the sauce bit at dinner time. Serves 4-5. - Diane
