Easy and Healthy Cashew Chicken

Easy and Healthy Cashew Chicken

15 chicken tenders (fresh or right from freezer)
1 whole stalk of celery sliced bite size
1/2 head of sliced and separated cabbage
1/2 onion
1 cup cashews
1/2 c. Braggs Aminos or soy sauce
1 tsp dry ginger
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
3/4 TBLS dry garlic
2 TBLS coconut oil
4 TBLS peanut butter

Simply line the bottom of your baking dish with fresh or frozen chicken and pour Aminos or soy sauce over chicken. Let sit to marinate 30 mins. Preheat oven to 350 and chop celery, onion and cabbage. Dump cut veggies over chicken. Sprinkle ginger, red pepper flakes and garlic over veggies. Drop coconut oil and peanut butter over veggies (no need to mix anything around). Cover with foil and bake 30 mins or till chicken and veggies are done. Cut chicken into bite size pieces, add cashews and mix till everything is coated with sauce. Enjoy!

Serves 6

You can of course add more veggies this is just what I had on hand. Would also be good with green onions instead of regular onion. I am not a real cooking fan, so have come up with ways of doing things in the oven for less mess and less work at the stove. Plus it's in a dish that can then be put in the fridge if there's leftovers! Love this way of cooking, makes my life easier!
