1 T peeled and minced fresh ginger

1 1/4 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces

Cook rice according to package directions.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add ginger and garlic and cook, stirring for 1 minute.

Add the chicken and cook, stirring, until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.

Add salt and pepper and stir to coat.

Add the broth, hoisin, lime juice and zest, and bring to a simmer.

Partially cover the pan and simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce thickens, 8 to 10 minutes.

Chop cashews; serve chicken over rice and top with cashews.

A friend left half a can of cashews at my place. I had no clue what to do with them. Then, this recipe was in the paper the next week. I usually shy away from cooking asian food, because it never tastes like the real deal to me. This recipe actually comes close!

We tried it for the same reason - leftover cashews! The flavor is great, but the sauce was not thick at all so I added cornstarch mixed with a little water and it thickened nicely. We also added water chestnuts and baby corn. A nice treat.

A dash of local for every season
