Weekday recipe with wow effect!

This recipe may serve you as a suggestion.

I love crunchy ingredients, for this reason I opted to set aside the cashew and the roasted onions and combine them to the chicken just before serving. On the other hand the chicken turned out very soft and incredible delicious.

A few ideas of possible additions: roasted broccoli florets, bok choy,  peas, oyster sauce (for the sauce) and orange juice.
