  • 3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, grated (about 1 1/2 tsp.)

Add remaining oil to skillet. Stir-fry peppers, peas and remaining ginger, garlic and white parts of scallions until cooked through, 2 minutes. Return chicken to skillet; add reserved marinade and salt. Sauté 1 to 2 minutes, until sauce thickens. Top with cashews and scallion greens.
