    Chilli Jam Cashew Chicken

    Chilli Jam Chicken

    This recipe came about on one of those days that I needed to clear out my fridge. Which would most probably be a Sunday as that’s the day that I’m usually low on supplies. I usually plan out the week’s menu from Monday to Friday, and pretty much make do with what I have on the weekends if I’m not making something special or to share on my blog. 

    This dish was very much inspired by the popular Cashew Chicken. I actually think that cashew chicken is more popular in the western counterparts rather than in SEA. The first time I had cashew chicken was when I was either in the USA or Aussie. Any how, as I was looking through my pantry, my eyes caught sight of a bottle of chilli jam I recently purchased during my trip to Thailand (oh, how I miss that place!). So this was the result of putting my ‘left-over fresh produce’ together. 

    The resulting dish was absolutely awesome! The husband kept nodding to himself as he enjoyed this for dinner. I really liked the crunch of the cashew that gives the dish some texture. The sweet, spicy, and savoury notes marries beautifully, and the sauce is just amazing over white rice. This is another one of those recipe that I will revisit again and again!
