Honey Chicken with Cashews

Ryan and I made this dish tonight and it turned out great in our new wok! We've been trying to make new HEALTHY recipes since I started weight watchers. I also start coaching tomorrow every evening form 6:00 - 9:00 pm so I have to bring dinner with me. This one will be great left over.

Ingredients:

3/4 c low sodium chicken broth
2 T reduced sodium soy sauce
2 T corn starch
1 1/2 T Honey
1 Pound chicken cut into pieces
1/8 t salt
2 Garlic cloves minced
2 red bell peppers cut into strips
3/4 c unsalted cashews, coarsely chopped
2 c thin whole wheat pasta

Cooking Directions:

1. Prepare all ingredients (everything cooks fast in the wok)
2. Start boiling water (for pasta)
3. whisk together broth, soy sauce, corn starch, and honey in a small bowl.
4. Sprinkle chicken with salt to taste
5. Spray wok with non-stick spray over high heat until a drop of water sizzles.
6. Stir-fry chicken until browned, about 3 minutes.
7. Add garlic and stir-fry for an additional minute. Then, transfer chicken to a plate.
8. Add bell peppers and stir-fry until tender, about 4 minutes. Return chicken to wok and add cashews. Stir-fry one more minute.
9. Add broth and stir-fry until mixture bubbles and thickens, about 2 minutes.
10. Serve over spaghetti.

4 Servings (1 cup chicken mixture & 1/2 cup pasta)
