For the Sauce
For the Chicken
Place a large pan or wok on high heat. Once the pan is very hot, add half the oil. Add the chicken and cook for just a couple of minutes on each side just till the edges begin to turn golden, without overcrowding the pan. If your pan isn’t very big, do this in batches. Remove the chicken to a plate and set aside.
Add the rest of the oil, then add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring, for five minutes, till starting to brown. Add the broccoli and cook, stirring, for just 2 minutes, until the broccoli is starting to turn bright green.
Return the chicken to the pan. Give your prepared sauce a good stir, then add that to the pan as well. Give it all a stir and simmer for two to three minutes, just until the sauce thickens and everything is heated through. Add the cashews and sesame seeds and serve immediately with brown rice or barley.
