Vietnamese Cashew Chicken (Ga Xao Hot Dieu) Recipe

Updated on March 20, 2015

Ga Xao Hot Dieu

Cashew chicken is a popular dish in Asian countries such as China, Thai, Vietnam and India. It could be this chicken dish was invented in China and brought to other countries by Chinese immigrants. One of the most famous cashew chicken is from Springfield, Missouri. I believe that you have seen this deep fried chicken coated with Asian style gravy on the menu of Chinese restaurant around the USA. Yes, they are really good but I prefer lighter version. I like stir-fried version which is lower in fat and sodium.

Here is very easy and quick to make Vietnamese style chicken with cashew. What you need is chicken and cashew nut with little bit seasoning. Loaded with tender chicken morsels and counterbalanced with crunchiness and nutty flavor of cashew nut, Vietnamese cashew chicken is rich and savory. Enjoy with warm steamed rice.

What You Need

Serves 4


1 lbs chicken breast (boneless) , diced (1-inch pieces)

2 cup diced bell pepper (red and green)

2 - 3 garlic cloves, minced

3 tbsp oyster sauce

1/2 tbsp cornstarch

1/3 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

1/3 tsp black pepper

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1/2 onion, sliced

1/2 cup lightly toasted cashew

2 spring onions, chopped

1 carrot, thinly sliced

How to Fix

  • In a bowl, place chicken, cornstarch, pepper, salt, sugar and oyster sauce. Stir to mix. Set aside.
  • Heat vegetable in a wok or sauté pan. Add garlic and onion. Stir-fry until soft and fragrant. Then stir in chicken, carrot. Continue to cook until the chicken is lightly brown and carrot is soft but not over cooked. Add bell pepper. Stir-fry this mixture about two minutes.
  • Then pour in the remaining oyster sauce, cashew and spring onions. Cook quickly to coat ingredients. Transfer immediately from the heat to serving plate.

      Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. Asian cuisine has always been a weak point in my cooking abilities, but I think that's about to change!
