2 tsp vegetable oil, divided
1 tsp sesame oil, divided
1 1/2 Tbsp ginger root, finely chopped (I use the ground ginger)
3 or so garlic cloves minced/pressed
1 pound skinless, boneless, chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
1-2 coloured pepper, chopped (red/orange/yellow) {I usually use 2 peppers}
2 cups of chopped broccoli
2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
Approx. 20 cashews, roasted, unsalted, roughly chopped

Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat.

Add 1 tsp of vegetable oil, 1/2 tsp of sesame oil, ginger and garlic; cook 15 seconds.

Add chicken and stir-fry until starting to brown, about 3 to 4 minutes; remove to a plate.

Add reamining tsp of vegetable oil, pepper and broccoli to same skillet and stir-fry for 3 minutes.

Add chicken back to skillet, pour in soy sauce and cook, stirring, until chicken is cooked trough, about 2 minutes more.

Toss with remaining 1/2 tsp of sesame oil.

Sprinkle on cashews and serve.

I also serve this over brown rice that I have cooked in chicken broth, and just add a little more soy sauce to the rice.
