Stir-Fry Chicken With Cashew Nuts

A favourite combination of sweet, almost creamy, cashews roasted to bring out  their nuttiness and stir fried with the tenderest chicken breasts. Subtly flavored with fish and oyster sauce with just a hint of garlic make this recipe stand out among other stir fries.

"Gai Pad Mamaung Himmaparan" is it's Thai name.
