Forget takeout: the path to a savory, Asian-inspired dinner is as simple as breaking out a pan and stir-frying up a storm. This recipe starts with chopping up some bok choy, carrots, and fragrant aromatics. Then, you’ll shift gears for a bit to focus on steaming the rice and toasting the nutty cashews. Afterwards, it all comes back to tossing around those veggies in a pan, followed by pieces of chicken and a savory sweet sauce. The results? A symphony of flavors.
