Cashew Chicken Instructions

1. Preheat the Oven:
Preheat your oven to 400°F. This temperature allows the chicken to cook through without drying out while achieving a beautiful golden brown color.

2. Prepare the Sheet Pan:
Take a large sheet pan and line it with parchment paper or lightly grease it with a bit of olive oil. This will help prevent the chicken from sticking to the pan and make cleanup a breeze.

3. Season and cook:
Place the chicken breasts and cashews on the sheet pan and season them with the soy sauce, ginger, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Ensure they are evenly spaced to allow for even cooking. Cook until chicken is done 15 to 20 minutes. Time depends no how big the chickenn is cut.

4. Drizzle:
Pour the honey over the chicken breasts and toss to coat.

5. Serve and Enjoy:
Once your Sheet Pan Honey Soy Chicken with Cashew Nuts is out of the oven, allow it to rest for a few minutes. Then, plate it up, garnish with fresh herbs or sesame seeds for an extra touch of flair, and serve hot.

The tender chicken, sticky-sweet glaze, and crispy cashews will leave your taste buds dancing with delight.
