One of the most popular Asian takeout dishes can be easily made in the Instant Pot! This Cashew Chicken is so delicious, you will make it a regular on your weekly menu. Serve this Cashew Chicken with rice or in lettuce cups.
Place chicken in Instant Pot, season with salt and pepper and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. The chicken does not need to be fully cooked. Just brown it a bit to add texture. Press "cancel/off" button.
Add cashews, red bell pepper, broccoli and beans and stir well. Cook, stirring often until peppers are tender. In a small bowl, whisk together water and cornstarch and add to mixture. Simmer until thickened. Turn off the Instant Pot.
Like with any stir fry dish, you can use whatever vegetables you like or have on hand. I almost always use broccoli. Red bell peppers add color texture and sweet flavor, edamame beans and snap peas are great too. Go for color, texture and you can make a beautiful dish!
