Mealthy Tip

If you'd like a thicker sauce, make a slurry by whisking 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 1/3 cup cold water. Whisk into sauce with chicken and and simmer until thickened, about 1 minute. Ladle any extra sauce over cauliflower rice.

First time I ever tried making cauliflower rice and I loved it! However, not sure if it was me or the recipe but the sauce was way too salty for my taste. Perhaps less oyster sauce and more sugar would solve that issue. I used back sesame seeds to top it off.

Cashews and chicken work so well together, and this dish demonstrates why. Add in the cauliflower rice and you have a hearty and filling meal. I love the zing from the ginger and rice vinegar as well.

I made a slurry so that the sauce would thicken some. Best decision ever, it was delicious and perfect over the cauliflower rice. Also, I made the cauliflower rice in my pressure cooker. Probably going to try to make the entire dish in a pressure cooker.

Made the cauliflower rice and cashew chicken at the same time in my pressure cooker using the convenient steamer basket feature. Took me a couple of tries to get it just right, but it's perfect. Love this recipe, so good.

Made the cashew chicken but didn't do cauliflower rice. This was a great recipe. The meat was really tender and full of flavor. Also, the tip to make a thicker sauce was perfect.
