    2) In a large bowl, toss the chicken with the soy, ginger and garlic and set aside.

    3) In a really large skillet, over medium-high heat, add about a tablespoon of oil, allow it to get nice and hot then add the peppers and onion and cook for about 2 minutes, remove from the pan to a plate and set aside.

    4) In the same skillet over medium-high heat, add a touch more oil and once itís nice and hot, add the chicken (make sure its in a single layer) and cook for a couple minutes on each side or until the chicken is fully cooked through.

    5) While the chicken cooks, whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce, then once the chicken is cooked through, add the sauce in and cook for a couple minutes until the sauce has thickened.

    6)Add in the cooked peppers and onions along with the toasted cashews and cook all together for 30 seconds, serve with some rice and dig in immediately!
