Vietnamese Stir-Fried Chicken with Nuts and California Raisins

Recipe Ingredients:
Stir-Fry Sauce:
1 cup chicken stock
3/4 cup fish sauce
3/4 cup granulated sugar

Stir-Fry:
2 whole boneless, skinless chicken breast
Canola oil or peanut oil
Salt, to taste
1/2 cup Chinese dates
1/2 cup California raisins
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup ginkgo nuts
2 tablespoons rice wine

Cooking Directions:
1 – For Stir-fry Sauce: Mix chicken stock, fish sauce and sugar together. Cover and store in refrigerator. (Sauce can be made up to 1 month in advance.)
2 – For Stir-fry: Have all ingredients ready. Cut chicken into 3/4-inch cubes. Rub with 1 tablespoon oil to coat meat and salt to taste; set aside.
3 – Soak dates and raisins in warm water for 10 minutes; drain.
4 – Boil fresh ginkgo nuts in water until tender; then peel off the outer skin or purchase already peeled.
5 – Heat a couple tablespoons of oil in pan or wok. Add walnuts and cashews; fry until golden brown. (If the walnuts taste bitter, make a new batch. You probably overcooked them). Set aside.
6 – Add 2 tablespoons oil to preheated wok. Heat to smoking. Add chicken cubes. Sauté until lightly browned. Drain off any excess oil. Add dates, raisins and nuts. Stir in rice wine and 3 tablespoons stir-fry sauce. (You will have extra stir-fry sauce. Keep it refrigerated for future use). Cook until heated through. Serve over steamed rice.
Makes 4 servings.

One of America’s Favorites – Cashew Chicken

A plate of stir-fried cashew chicken (traditional)

Cashew chicken is a simple Chinese-American dish that combines chicken (usually stir-fried but occasionally deep-fried, depending on the variation), with cashews and either a light brown garlic sauce or a thick sauce made from chicken stock, soy sauce and oyster sauce.

Springfield-style cashew chicken

 

A plate of Springfield-style (deep fried) cashew chicken

The deep-fried version of the dish is closely associated with the city of Springfield, Missouri. Deep-fried cashew chicken was apparently first served in 1963 at the Grove Supper Club in Springfield. David Leong, the chef, who moved to the United States from China in 1940, struggled to gain acceptance for the foods of his homeland so he began searching for a dish that would appeal to local residents’ taste buds. His famous deep-fried cashew chicken recipe was so popular he soon opened Leong’s Tea House in Springfield. The dish became exceedingly popular in the Springfield area and is often cited as the unofficial “dish of the city”. Springfield even hosts an annual festival that is centered on this chicken dish: Springfield Sertoma’s Cashew Craze.

 

Borrowing from the local love of fried chicken, Leong came up with a variation of the preexisting dish. Instead of stir-frying the chicken, as is normally done, he deep-fried the chicken chunks. He then covered them with the typical sauce made from chicken stock, soy sauce and oyster sauce, and added the handful of cashews. He also included chopped green onions as a twist and it became an immediate hit with the local crowd. As word spread about the dish, so did the recipe. Leong’s Tea House closed its doors in 1997, but Springfield-style cashew chicken is still being served at over 70 Chinese restaurants, as well as many non-Chinese restaurants, in and around the Springfield metropolitan area, and elsewhere in Missouri and other states. Springfield-style cashew chicken has been mentioned on The Food Channel, a nationwide syndicated radio program, and the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

 

In 2010, Leong’s son, with his father’s assistance, opened a new restaurant in Springfield serving the same style of cashew chicken.

 
In Thai cuisine, there is a related stir-fry dish called kai pad med mamuang himmapan or gai pad med ma muang.

In Haitian cuisine, there is an unrelated chicken stew with cashews called poul ak nwa.
