Why I Love This Recipe

I invented a separate recipe for a main dish of diced chicken and one time made some chicken salad with the leftovers. I added a few extra modifications and it was a huge hit so I've made more of an "official" recipe!

Ingredients You'll Need

3-4 boneless breasts of chicken, diced
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3/4 cup cooking sherry (any preferrably sweet white wine can substitute)
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 tsp. thyme
1 1/2 Tbsp. dried basil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup cashews, roughly chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped (optional)
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste


Sautee onion, green pepper and garlic in large skillet with oil

Add chicken after 3-4 minutes

Add cooking sherry and thyme, basil, salt and pepper

Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes

Increase to high heat for 10-15 minutes to reduce the liquid

Simmer on low for 10-15 minutes

Remove from pan, add mayonnaise, cashews, celery and soy sauce

Chill for best taste, and enjoy!
