Sriracha Honey Cashew Chicken

I know most of you have seen this recipe floating around the blogosphere, but I HAD to share this.  This is one of the best stir-fried recipes I have tried in a while.

But, of course it is, it's got Sriracha in it, how could it not be??

You all know I love stir-fry because of it's simplicity and ease - this recipe is all that AND absolutely delicious!!

Sriracha Honey Cashew Chicken
Adapted from Mary, Barefeet in the Kitchen
Printable Recipe 
3 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 Tablespoon rice vinegar
1 1/2 Tablespoons Sriracha
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons vegetable or peanut oil
1 lbs chicken, cut into thin strips or bite size pieces
1 red pepper, thinly sliced or chopped
6 oz snow peas
1/4 - 1/2 cup unsalted cashews

In a small bowl or measuring cup, add the honey, soy, vinegar, Sriracha and cornstarch; stirring to combine.  Set aside.

In a wok or deep, non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat.  Add the chicken and stir fry for 4 minutes.  Add the red pepper and snow peas and stir fry another 3-4 minutes.  Stir in the Sriracha mixture and bring to a boil.  Immediately remove from heat and stir to combine.  Stir in the cashews.  Serve over rice or noodles and enjoy!

I need to make this one again, asap. Thanks for the link, Jenn. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

P.S. It made me grin when I noticed that the Marry You cookies were your One Year Ago Today post. Have a great day!

I hate to sound like an idiot (actually it happens more than I would admit) but I've never actually heard of sriracha - this is what I love about food blogging - one more thing to try!

Proof that simple is best! This stir-fry would be a great weeknight dinner idea. Thanks for sharing.

We have really grown fond of the siraracha (sp?) sauce. We use it often too.

Lovely! This looks like just what I've been in the mood for lately - can't wait to make it! (Well, I have to wait until I can get my hands on some unsalted cashews.)
