Chicken with Celery and Cashews


From Classic Chinese recipes

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin slices
2 tbsp. sunflower or vegetable oil
1 c. unsalted cashews
4-6 scallions, thinly sliced diagonally
5-6 celery stalks, thinly sliced diagonally
6 oz. jar yellow bean sauce
Salt and pepper
Rice to serve

Heat the oil; add the cashews and stir-fry until they begin to brown.  Add the chicken and stir fry until well sealed and almost cooked through.  Add the scallions and celery, and stir fry for another 2-3 minutes.

Add the yellow bean sauce, season lightly with salt and pepper, and toss until the chicken and vegetables are thoroughly coated.  Transfer to a warm serving dish and serve immediately with rice.
