  • About

This dish is the archetypal Cantonese stir-fry, loved by both the Chinese and the non-Chinese, for it combines all the winning elements: a contrast of texture between the tender chicken and the crunchy nuts, harmonious flavouring and wok fragrance. Add to this the nutritious yet healthy quality of every ingredient, and the dish will continue to be popular. Instead of cashew nuts, you can use pine nuts or, at a pinch, even peanuts.
