This recipe is not something you would think of making on your own. It calls for many ingredients that you might not think would go well together, but they most certainly do in the end. It came to me by combining different ethnic influenced recipes. Many countries use cashews in their cuisine and I wanted to take full advantage of the flavor that this nut can add to a recipe. This is really an Asian inspired dish. From India to China cashews are often used to create delicious and interesting dishes.
This chicken cashew casserole is truly great and different. You have the taste of the pickled onions combined with the fresh mint and a hint of freshly pressed lime juice, all of that combined with a delicious cashew-based sauce that’s off the charts. I could probably talk about the amazing taste of this dish for hours, but the bottom line is that you have to try it for yourself.
One thing to keep in mind for this recipe is that you’ll need a food processor to crush the cashews into a puree. Not everyone has a food processor at home so an alternative would be to use a blender or even crush the cashews with a mortar and pestle, but you’ll need to add some olive oil if you choose these last two options. Of course, using a mortar and pestle is also more time consuming.
Cashews are a good source of magnesium, copper and manganese. You can also have a look at the ‘’are nuts and seeds healthy?’’ article on the website if you have unanswered questions about nuts. Moderation is usually the best option when it comes to most nuts. On one side they are really nutritious, but on the other they are also still quite high in omega-6 PUFA.
This is a dish that’s really filling with protein from the chicken and fat from the cashews from the cashews and coconut milk. It’s a nice meal to prepare if you have lot of mouths to feed or need some extra energy to fuel your activities.
