  • Combine chicken, corn starch and soy sauce. Refrigerate 15 min. to marinate.
  • Heat 1-1/2 tsp. oil in wok or large skillet on high heat. Add garlic and ginger; stir-fry 1 min. Add chicken; stir-fry 4 to 5 min. or until lightly browned. Remove from wok.
  • Add remaining oil and peppers to wok; stir-fry on medium-high heat 2 min. Add chicken; stir-fry 2 min. or until done. Stir in dressing. Spoon onto platter; top with nuts.

Food Facts

Adding corn starch or potato starch to the marinade before stir-frying is a common Chinese cooking technique. The starch binds together with the liquid ingredients in the marinade and seals them to the meat, poultry or seafood being marinated. This technique is particularly important in quick cooking stir-fry dishes as it helps add more flavour to the food.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with hot cooked rice.


Substitute 4 cups small broccoli florets for the green peppers.

    We tried this recipe last night, it was easy enough but somewhat bland tasting. We added broccoli and red peppers to it but still found it was missing something.

    I made this for supper on the weekend because Cashew Chicken is one of my favourite dishes to order at Thai restaurants. It was easy and fast to prepare. My husband liked it, but I thought it was too bland and will not be making this recipe again.

    I have always loved Catalina dressing - even as a kid. I used Catalina for beef recipes (like chili) but never with chicken. I LOVED this recipe. So easy to make. So delicious!
