cashew chicken

so. about the delay in posts-- so sorry about all of this! we have both been superbly busy. i was finishing my semester of school (which was exhausting. so exhausting.), and miss erica is getting ready to go out of town for the holidays. i sure hope she starts to blog again-- i don't know about you, but i miss her writing style~!

for the first time evah i cooked my chicken perfectly! i almost always overdo it and it's tough. and if it's tough it ruins the dish. if it's cooked perfectly, the dish is perfect.

take some chicken. cut it into bite size pieces. in a bag, put some cornstarch, then toss the chicken in it. over a pretty hot skillet, cook the chicken. cook it with a bit of soy sauce and some ginger (have you noticed that we're all about "a bit" and "some" instead of measurements? usually...).

once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pan. put it in a bowl, then store it in the microwave just to keep it warm. in the same pan, cook just until tender crisp some red pepper that is chopped as big (or as small) as you want it. add some green onions for a touch of spice, more soy sauce, more ginger, and some cashews.

mix it all together, serve it up, top with some more cashews and green onions, and enjoy! it's definitely a keeper recipe.

i love recipes like this that are so simple, so easy to make, and don't have a ton of seasonings.
