For the sauce:

4 tbsp. water

4 tbsp. coconut aminos

2 tbsp. oyster sauce

1 tbsp. rice vinegar

2 garlic cloves

How to Prepare

Place the sauce ingredients into a jar or bowl, stir to combine and set aside.

Place the chicken into a large bowl, season with 2-3 tablespoons of the sauce and the white pepper. Mix to combine, cover the bowl and set aside to marinate for 20 minutes.

Add the arrowroot to the remaining sauce, mix well, and set aside.

When ready to cook, add the coconut oil to a large skillet and place over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper and onion to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes. Next add the chicken and cook for 7-8 minutes. Now reduce the heat to medium, and add the remaining sauce, stir continuously to warm the sauce.

Remove the skillet from the heat and mix through the cashews.

Serve immediately with the cooked rice, garnished with green onions and the optional red chili.
