Sorry, I should have also added &#39;adjust oil accordingly and times if substituting with chicken breasts&#39; since chicken breasts are much drier, the oil I used was adequate for the chicken thighs. As always, when cooking Chinese food, sometimes you have to &#39;cook on the fly&#39; i.e. if you see /think the chicken breasts look too dry, go ahead and add a little bit more oil. But yes, I did not intend to fully cook the chicken before the cashews are added but about 3/4 cooked where 3-5 minutes were enough for chicken thigh cubes. Thanks for your feedback.Smoky Wok (Tastes of Home)http://www.tastesofhome.blogspot.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8092092153094298213.post-11377581806102171172011-10-27T06:44:55.583+08:002011-10-27T06:44:55.583+08:00Hi Jen, i just made your chicken and I had a coupl...Hi Jen, i just made your chicken and I had a couple questions. It says either 6 breasts or 6 thighs but 6 breasts come to about 1.2 kg of meat. I found there wasn&#39;t enough aromatic oil (essentially 2 tbsp) in the wok to even come close to covering all the chicken. I also found that it took quite a lot of time beyond the 3-5 minutes to cook down the chicken before adding the cashews. Is this how you intended it?Leenoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8092092153094298213.post-52583629249117300362011-04-10T12:15:30.378+08:002011-04-10T12:15:30.378+08:00You&#39;re welcome!
