Chicken with Cashews and Noodles 2

Chicken and Cashews with Noodles


This one was even more yummy than the first and was the first time I've used Pak Choy (Bok Choy),  listed as 'Moderate' in Salicylates.  I used the same sauce of golden syrup, water and corn flour, but tinkered as I went to get it right.  In the end, there was too much sauce,  but never mind.  Obviously,  in a stir fry,  you put in whatever you have in your fridge or is in season.  Any combination of this and the first noodle recipe would be just lovely. 

This time I have used 3 vegetables listed as 'Moderate' in the RPAH Elimination Diet handbook,  but I decided it was worth the risk.  Let's face it,  Ms C is going to eat the chicken, the noodles and the cashews and avoid the vegie stuff anyway.  So,  minimum risk really.

Ingredients:

  • 500g chicken breast
  • 1/2 Leek
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 medium Carrots*, cut into teeny matchsticks
  • 2-3 sticks Celery, finely sliced
  • 4-5 Asparagus* stalks, sliced
  • 1 Pak Choy* plant, leaves chopped once and stalked chopped 3 times
  • 100-125g raw Cashews
Sauce:
  • 1 tab corn flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tabs golden syrup
  • Salt

Method:

  • Prepare sauce by combining all ingredients, mixing well and set aside
  • Chop garlic and leek in TMX on about Speed 7 for about 4 seconds
  • Scrape down, add a little oil and saute for 2 minutes on 100degC, Reverse Speed Soft
  • Add diced chicken and cooked on 100degC, Reverse Speed Slow for about 5 minutes
  • Remove chicken mix from TMX
  • Add carrot, celery, asparagus and pak choy stalks
  • Cook for 10 minutes, 100 degC on Reverse Speed Soft, scraping down bowl occasionally
  • Add chicken, cashews and sauce and cook further 5-10 minutes 100 degC Reverse Speed soft until sauce thickens and it is well combined.  Use spatula to help it along.
  • Add Pak Choy leaves and again use spatula to really mix it in, cooking a further 3-5 minutes.
  • Serve on Rice Noodles

*Moderate Salicylates

More vegies to try:
  • Choko,  sliced finely
  • Spring onion
  • Butternut Pumpkin, in matchsticks
  • Bamboo Shoots
