Directions

Heat the oil in a wok or a large saute pan over high heat. Dust the chicken with cornstarch. When the oil is hot, add the chicken, and cook until it just turns opaque, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the green onion bottoms, garlic, and crushed red pepper and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the snow peas, red bell pepper, onion, celery, and cook until just tender, about 1 minute.

Add the chicken stock, hoisin, and soy sauce to the wok. Stir to combine. Move the contents of the wok to the side to reveal a well. Submerge the cellophane noodles into the liquid. Cover the noodles with the chicken and vegetables and cook 1 minute longer.

Remove the chicken from the heat. Add the green onion tops, roasted cashews, and toss to combine all the ingredients. Season the mixture with salt, and pepper, to taste, and serve immediately.

    Yum, Yum, Yum! I made 2 changes: added extra hoisin sauce and extra snow pea pods. Thanks, Emeril!

    This is a definite keeper in my house. i did make a few adjustments though. I have to cook for 6 and try to have it last until the next night...(if they don't eat all the first night...lol. So I used about 2 1/2 pounds of chicken but should have used the full 3 1/2 that I had...lol. I also did not use the noodles and instead made a side of jasmine rice (fam was out so I didn't want the noodles to abso the juice and become fat. I skipped the nuts also. It was a rave and almost didn't make it for lunch or possible dinner the next night. Will definitely try it again and hopefully get to use the noodles.
