Cashew Chicken Stir-fry Recipe

Cashew Chicken Stir-fry

This nutty mix of veggie impostors is guaranteed to cause a stir!

by Cindy A. Littlefield

What you'll need

  • Fruit Roll-Ups, 2 to 3 green rolls and 1 red roll
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hulled sunflower seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups dried apple rings
  • 3/4 cup dried pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup cashews

How to make it

  1. First, make a bunch of pea pods. For each one, cut a 2 1/4-inch square from a green fruit roll. Arrange five or six sunflower seeds (for peas) on the strip in a vertical row, just off center. Fold the strip in half over the seeds and press the edges together to seal them. Use a butter knife or kitchen scissors to trim the sealed edges into a rounded pod shape.
  2. Next, cut the red fruit roll into thin pepper strips and the apple rings into bite-size chicken pieces. For the full effect, combine the pea pods, pepper strips, chicken pieces, pineapple chunks, and cashews in a frying pan. Or serve the mix on plates with chopsticks. Makes three cups.
