Quick, easy, healthy and cheap – this Chicken cashew is perfect for a weeknight dinner. It is made with all whole foods (well perhaps not the soy sauce). I had mine with a cup of cauliflower ‘rice ‘while the active boyfriend had his with steamed white rice. The cost was $4.80 per serve including cauliflower rice*.
