Popular cashew chicken is an all-star recipe that can be found in many restaurants. As a result, it’s usually packed with added sugars, that are hidden in the sauce. Furthermore, the portions served are often too big, and you can end up eating way too much. Try this healthier version that will make you both satisfied and full of energy rather than ordering it from your favorite takeaway place.
