Ingredients

  • 1 lb Chicken thighs (boneless and skinless), cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp Dry sherry, divided
  • 2 tsp Reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch, divided
  • 3/4 cup Low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
  • 2 tsp Chili-garlic sauce
  • 2 tbsp Peanut oil, divided
  • 1 Onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 Red bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 cups Broccoli florets
  • 1/3 cup Dry roasted cashew halves
  • 1/2 cup Green onions, chopped

Directions

  1. Combine the chicken, 1 tbsp of the sherry, 1 tbsp of the soy sauce, and 1 tbsp of the cornstarch in a bowl. Combine the remaining sherry, soy sauce, cornstarch, chicken broth, hoisin sauce, and chili-garlic sauce in a separate bowl.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and stir-fry until browned and cooked through, about 6 minutes; transfer to a bowl. Heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in the skillet; add the onion and ginger and stir-fry 1 minute. Add the red bell pepper and stir-fry 1 minute. Stir in the broccoli florets and stir-fry 1 minute. Add the reserved chicken mixture and cashews and stir-fry 1 minute. Stir the chicken broth mixture and add to the skillet. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Stir in the green onions and remove from the heat.
