A Popular Stir-fried Chicken with Cashew nuts Recipe.

This Sir-fried chicken with cashew nuts (kai phat met mamuang himmapaan) recipe is not complicated so you can easily cook it. It was very enjoyable to make this dish while I learned in the Suan Dusit International Culinary School. My friend and I could make it very tasty and beautifully presented since the first time we did it (and we were very proud of ourselves). I will show you step by step so you can get the same results as us.

This menu is also quite popular in other countries, I think, because of the taste is equally sweet, sour and just a bit spicy . The presentation of this dish is quite wonderful as well. Let's try this dish!
