Cashew Chicken

Y'all - This Cashew Chicken is an easy beautiful recipe you can serve with rice, rice noodles, or even cauliflower rice. It is full of veggies, a delicious low calorie sauce, and very high in protein. You can also use boneless skinless chicken thighs for a much juicier protein - it is a bit higher in fat, but if you want a crowd pleaser, take the substitute, because YUM.

Double this recipe to make a few meals of this for a nice meal prep opportunity! I hope you love this one.
